Current employment
Northern California Public Broadcasting

San Jose, CA
2005-Current: Broadcast Scheduling Manager
2000-2005: Continuity Coordinator
1998-2005: Traffic Coordinator
1997-2004: Master Control Air-Operator (relief only from 1998-2004)

Originally hired as an Air-Operator, moved into Traffic within 8 months, though I continued to serve as a vacation relief operator for six more years. In the fall of 2000 took on the responsibility of the scheduling of on-air promos and filler material. As of 2005, title changed to reflect the addition of program scheduling. Plus I also do some periodic on-air pledge pitching, and occasional continuity announcements.
