Clint August - September 2013 Spotlight

By Joe Nelson
   The September 2013 SanDiegoRadio Spotlight features KGB's Clint August.
Clint, thanks for taking the time for the SanDiegoRadio Spotlight feature.
Joe: Clint, what is your current position?
Clint: On air afternoon drive on 101.5 KGB FM San Diego and Saturday mornings from 9-10 AM on News Radio 600 KOGO (My Home Improvement)

JN: What are your favorite parts of the job?
CA: Meeting listeners and having the opportunity to thank our military heroes every day before I sign off. I think it's very important to let them know how much we appreciate them for their sacrifice. PAST AND PRESENT!!

JN: Who are your favorite musical artists?
CA: Guns N Roses, Van Halen (David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar), AC/DC, Scorpions, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, U2, Blind Melon, Dean Martin... the list goes on, but those come to mind as of now.

JN: And your current favorites?
CA: The same... I keep finding a reason to enjoy classic and new artists every day. It really depends on my mood.

JN: Tell me about your personal side.
CA: I enjoy family and friends very much. I love to camp, ride my Harley, talk with my sons and see how their day goes. Talking with my wife... I really value my neighbors and I enjoy being a part of the Santee Comunity. Supporting local business is huge for me as well.

JN: What are your favorite restaurants?
CA: Eastbound Bar and Grille, The Godfather, Olive Garden, and pretty much any other restaurant that serves food!!! I LOVE FOOD...

JN: What are your movie interests?
CA: I absolutely love movies...The Shawshank Redemption is one of my top 5 of all time. The Avengers is incredible because it's a great family movie, yet compelling enough for me (as an adult), to really enjoy the story line. Some of my other favorites are The Expendables, Terminator, Tombstone, and several others. Movies take me away from reality for a short amount of time. I love my realty, but sometimes I want to forget about the bills I owe, the appointments I have to keep, and other responsibilities.

JN: Do you have any hobbies?
CA: My hobbies are riding my Harley (if that's a hobby), camping, and taking pictures for sure.... enjoying what San Diego has to offer by way of the beach, the mountains, and just experiencing different things that I learn about in our county.

JN: What are your favorite parts of the city?
CA: I love Gaslamp District, downtown. Julian is an absolute must, to appreciate our surrounding mountains. I do love Santee and if I have to choose which part, I'd say Town Center. Santee has really improved in the last 20 years. (Can we get a darn movie theater already???)

JN: Is there anything else you'd like to share?
CA: I want anyone who reads this to know how much I appreciate your support over my tenure in radio here in San Diego. I have been blessed to meet many new friends throughout my career. When I get a single phone call or email, or even a handshake in the grocery store... that's why I love what I do. Thank you, and if you ever served our military, you will ALWAYS be remembered!!!

*Editor's note*
That's where my interview with Clint ended, but he left out some important things. Knowing Clint as well as I do, I am sure it had more to do with his humility, to keep the focus off of him, and on his causes.
Clint is a huge supporter of the military, he hosts many fundraisers throughout the year to gather funds. He holds his annual 'May Ride', gets celebrities to come help out. He once asked for 'some' bikers to go by the house of Josiah, a sweet boy who is sick, and by the time they rode by, there were HUNDREDS! Video below


Josiah and I

Clint, thanks for all you do for the military and San Diego. 
-Joe
