STAA client Keric Seegmiller has been hired as Program Director at ESPN Radio 102.9 The Zone in Twin Falls, ID.
“I’m excited to kick off my career in sports radio and this job will provide a perfect opportunity to do so,” says Seegmiller, a 2012 graduate of Dixie State College in St. George, UT.
In Twin Falls, Seegmiller’s responsibilities will include programming, play-by-play and production. “This will be my first post-college radio job and will provide me the necessary experiences to learn everything I need for a long and successful career in sports radio.”
Seegmiller’s new opportunity came through proactive and consistent effort in the job market.
“This job is the direct result of networking and unceasingly looking for opportunities to work,” he says. “I didn’t just limit my job search to current openings, but contacted and consistently followed up with sports radio stations in the areas I wanted to work.”
While in school at Dixie State, Seegmiller worked at a local ESPN Radio affiliate as an air talent and board op. He joined STAA in April 2012, just prior to graduating.
“I appreciate everything you do at STAA in helping us aspiring sportscasters get the jobs we want. My talent page was crucial in helping me turn this job from opportunity to reality.
“I probably wouldn’t have been able to get the job without my STAA page to easily promote my current resume and work samples.”
