I Have the Perfect Face For Radio

It's been too long since I've made an entry on this blog. In case you don't know, I've been regularly updating our family blog at I've also been blogging on, and every once in a while I write something on my MySpace blog found at I even write some other places under a handle. But this right here is my main personal blog. I just haven't had all that much to say recently that I've wanted to say publicly. I've been keeping stuff to e-mail.

Really, Kori and I have been keeping busy just being parents to Keelie, spending time with family, and me with my job-outside-the-house. Nothing too exciting or different to report.

Speaking of my job, right after I finally woke up today, I checked my phone and had a message from someone at KFWB who wanted to talk with me about gas stations. So, I recorded an interview with him over the phone. That's just the first part of the work for the radio folks. The then edit the interview to get statements they want to use, and write a script for the on-air anchor to introduce the piece.

The problem for me, is that if I want to hear how the report turns out, I have to keep listening. It's not like with television news, where certain channels have certain news hours, and that's it. KFWB is all news, all of the time, with a 20-minute news cycle, and not all coverage takes place during every cycle.

I enjoy doing this kind of work. I've had mostly good experiences with broadcast reporters.

Today on KFWB, there has been a lot of coverage about a fatal shark attack off of the shore of San Diego county.
