Country was often the music of choice prior to meetings of the Bowling Green Radio Sports Organization, a student organization at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Jake Sidle says he has more appreciation for the music genre now that he’s joining country music stations KSJB/KSJZ in Jamestown, North Dakota.
It’s Sidle first full-time job since graduating from BGSU last year.
“I will serve as on-air talent and provide play-by-play for local high school athletics,” he says excitedly.
Since graduating from college, Sidle has been doing freelance play-by-play and working outside broadcasting while looking for his first full-time opportunity. He had a baseball broadcasting job lined up this summer in an Ohio collegiate summer league.
Sidle is a native of Wooster, OH. He grew up a fan of the Cleveland Indians and their longtime broadcaster, Tom Hamilton.
Sidle joined STAA on January 7th. The Jamestown job lead was sent to STAA members just over two weeks later. Now Sidle is on his way to the Dakota plains.
