April's SanDiegoRadio Spotlight is on Magic 92.5's Sammy Jo! Producer for Jagger and Kristi.
Sammy, thanks for your time!
I am currently the morning show producer for Jagger & Kristi at Magic 92.5 XHRM-FM
It really is. Everyday I am challenged by something new and its amazing being able to go to a job and always learn something new. Not to mention, working with Jagger & Kristi on a daily basis every morning is one of the best things I could ever ask for (I'm not just saying that because they are my bosses...but they really are the best bosses ever!)
called "Breakfast with Jagger & Kristi" where I select an individual and their 4 guests to come into the studio and watch us work for an hour and really get the behind the scenes aspect of what we do. When they are in, we learn about their lives and they learn more about ours and you really connect with listeners on a one-on-one basis. Not only do we really enjoy it but they do as well and they leave feeling an even closer connection to Jagger & Kristi and Magic. Establishing that connection with our listeners is one of our main goals. Without them we wouldn't be around.
I have worked in the San Diego radio market for about 4 and a half years. I also worked at stations back in Wisconsin when I was in college. I worked in Television and Radio when I was earning my degree in broadcast and digital communication, and once I graduated I packed up and headed to San Diego!
When I was 15 I sold Kirby vacuum cleaners. I had to drag a huge vacuum cleaner door to door and try to convince total strangers to let me in their house to prove that their current vacuum wasn't doing a proper cleaning. It was interesting to say the least.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Just that I feel really grateful to work and live in San Diego in a job that I love and working with Jagger & Kristi and everyone at my company.
