(March 18, 2011) Sacrifice has paid off for Peter Mundo. An STAA client, Mundo is joining KWOX/KMZE radio in Woodward, OK as a news and sports reporter and play-by-play broadcaster.
The new job means the end of a weekly 400-mile round trip commute for Mundo. Since September, Mundo has been hosting a show at a station in East Hampton Long Island during the week. On weekends, he’s been driving to Easton PA to do production work for the local ESPN affiliate. Those days, though, of long miles and high gas prices are over.
“Since I started making the commute, gas has gone from $2.40 per gallon to $3.40 per gallon,” Mundo says. “I was barely covering my gas costs. However, I always viewed putting these two positions together as springboard to somewhere, and so far, it’s worked out.”
Mundo’s work ethic is part of what impressed KWOX/KMZE Program Director and fellow STAA client Mike Pilosof. “I think he respected and appreciated that,” says Mundo. “We hit it off. It’s a job where you are going to need a guy you can work well with, and I think that is what sold him.”
As for the move from New York to Oklahoma, Mundo is unfazed. “I’m 22. You only get to do this once,” he smiles
“I think this is my first step to something even better down the road.”
