How to (Truly) Be a Pioneer!

This semester, I’m embarking on a new adventure for my COM 130 class. It’s my first time being a DJ for UC’s radio station, WPNR 90.7 & I’m so excited!


I honestly never thought I would (or could) be a DJ, but here I am – ready to go!

When I first heard that I was going to have my own hour long radio show, I was completely nervous. Being that WPNR isn’t a huge station for country music, I had no idea what I was going to play, since country music is definitely my genre. But, apparently God has a sense of humor & had some other plans!

As luck would have it, two other girls with whom I was training with, happened to love country music too. So, we pitched the idea of having a country music hour….which ended up into having a 3 hour country music session on Friday mornings. 🙂


Basically, we were pioneers (yes, pun intended) in the sense that we are bringing country music to WPNR. Why is that so important? Well, if you’re a fan, you’ll understand. If not, I feel sorry & hope to convert you. It’ll be such a great change to hear some music that is fun and has meaning too. But, back on the topic….

Bottom line: No matter who you are or what you do, if you’re in a situation that you feel needs a little (positive) change, don’t be afraid to speak out. Don’t risk your happiness or do something you don’t feel is right for you. Change it! Make suggestions. Be that person who doesn’t settle & says what others are thinking. You never know what kind of difference it would make.
