  1. My only radio experience was reading news headlines on KNHC at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, where I graduated in 1973, and doing the same on KSSR, the then-operating carrier current station at Seattle Pacific University, where I graduated in communications in 1977. After college, I was interested in three fields — broadcast news, broadcast management and newspapering — and the latter is where I have wound up working for the past 45 years. But I have maintained my strong interest in the broadcast industry. I worked in 1977-78 as a reporter for the small daily in Ontario in eastern Oregon; 1978-85 as editor of the weekly Anacortes American in northwest Washington (sister paper of the Skagit Valley Herald in Mount Vernon), 1985-93 as a reporter and then associate editor at The Daily Astorian on the north Oregon coast, and from 1994 to the present as founding publisher and editor of Christian News Northwest newspaper (cnnw.com) in the Portland area. It is a regional 26,000-circulation monthly focusing on the evangelical Christian community in the Northwest. Along the way, I also worked from 1995 to 2002 as director of public information for George Fox University, a Christian school in Newberg, OR. My wife of 37 years and I live in Newberg and have four grown children and nine grandchildren.

  3. I have lived in Seattle all my life and followed most of our TV and radio stations since I was a kid back in the 70’s. This website has been helpful and love listening to air check sounds of what Seattle radio was back then!

    1. Some families sat together around the tv and even the radio in the earlier days. Now, the family is scattered, each with a handheld device for listening or viewing. I think we had it better, back in our youth. It’s nice to have so much entertainment available on-demand, but I think we were all happier “in the good old days”.

      1. Yep that’s what we did when I was a kid back then watched it with my folks. Radio was so fun to listen to in those days whether you traveled around Seattle or long road trips like we did!
