I went to school at UCSD. Just before I graduated I got a job as an intern at Rock 105.3 (KIOZ) in San Diego working for Mikey Esparza at night. There were some crazy things going on in the studio most nights. I’m sure in this day and age you would get fined over. Let’s just say we had a lot of fun. I worked for him for about a year when he got hired to do afternoons at KSJO.
From there I got an actual paid job working in promotions under Shauna Moran. When a full time position became available I jumped at it. It was programming assistant for a few Clear Channel stations in San Diego. I made it a point to learn as much as I could and that included Selector. I helped out Rock 105.3 with music scheduling and eventually became Music Director of KGB. I did that for a couple of years and filled in on-air weekends/vacations. (more…)
