So, why did I change stations? I actually have a history of leaving a place after 15 years. I began my radio career when I was 14 years old, and about to be a sophomore in high school. I've been very fortunate (and lucky), to walk into radio stations that about to experience a growth spurt.

There comes a time when the station can just about run itself, and I start getting itchy. When the Mix family called, I was really excited to hear about their plans. I've known Lori Crofford for so long, that I don't remember meeting her.

Our afternoon guy, Braden, may be the hardest working man in show business. Charlie Hardin has been a tremendous help, with my constant questions, and showing me what all the buttons do. This is radio nirvana for me.

Everyone here has gone out of their way to be kind and patient. There are many great things on the way, for Mix 94.1 and I can't wait. We will strengthen our community ties, and become, what is a rarity these days, a hometown radio station. Your station!

I must also thank the people of the panhandle. who have called, sent texts, or posted on my Facebook page. You are truly appreciated.

So, here's to the next 15 years for Mix 94.1!
