(January 29, 2016) The more a person can do in radio, the more employable they are going to be. William Cheshier’s varied skill set has earned him a position with Regional Radio in Farmington, MO. His position includes play-by-play, news and sports, a country music air shift, and video production.
“It is a good position to gain much needed experience in the professional ranks.” Cheshier says.
A native of Bothell, WA, Cheshier is a 2015 graduate of Washington State University. At WSU, he did play-by-play and covered a variety of news and sports on the campus radio and TV stations.
While excited, Cheshier admits to feeling a touch of anxiety about moving to the Midwest. “I would say I feel a bit of nerves as I get ready to embark on the first step of my career in a place I have never been before,” Cheshier says. “However, I have mentally been preparing for this for a long time and know it is a necessary part of the journey in my pursuit of becoming a sports broadcaster. I find myself feeling more excited and anxious to get started, and think it is an excellent opportunity to calm those nerves by immersing myself into this new job.
“I want to thank [STAA] very much for all the guidance you have given me both personally, and through the STAA website and emails. All of the content has been very helpful and I don’t think I would have had the opportunity to take this position without it.”
