Hard to imagine, 15 years ago this month, I was employed by Radio 810 CKJS. Thinking about it, that’s 3 different car payments. That’s a home mortgage for some who are into paying their loans ASAP. On a more unfortunate note, it’s longer than most relationships. If I have worked for a different company, I might have a bit of a loyalty token this month. It might be like a nice gold watch, or a pair of daimond earrings, or even just a combo 2 at a fast food chain, but I digress.
I am proud to say though that all these years, I am still here being heard everyday. Touching people’s lives (hopefully in a good way) through the airwaves. It was never easy, as I have a different broadcasting style than people are used to here in Winnipeg. Not to mention that when I was still broadcasting in Angeles City, we spoke exclusively in English on the air. So forcing a solid Kapampangan to broadcast in Tagalog was an entire training session in Languages. I am still learning. Still learning every single day.
To all my friends who have been with me since my first broadcast in April 2001, and still keeping their faith in me to be the best I can be on the air… THANK YOU. You are the reason why I wake up early morning, every day, and still at it even on a Saturday, the supposed week end. To all the sponsors, advertisers, supporters and all who spend their advertising dollars on us… THANK YOU as well. You are the reason why I can put food on the table.
Cheers to another 15 years (hopefully more!) of broadcasting for me. Wait, who am I kidding, it will definitely be more! And I hope as the days pass and our lives entwine through the radio, we can all grow more and more. Thanks to my CKJS Radio family for all the years that we truly are a family. And to our mother company, Evanov Radio… I choose the diamond earrings. 🙂
