Get to Know: Abby Hergert

AbbyI’m the music director at the Fortress, which is the most fun anyone can have on staff —don’t let the others tell you differently. Okay, maybe it’s not the most fun, but it sure is a blast. I get to hear all of the music before it airs on the station, and I get to choose what will and will not air. It’s almost like I get to be my own version of Simon Cowell right in my office! (Actually, it’s nothing like that, but you can imagine that it is.)

As the music director of the Fortress, it’s my job to make sure that all the music is scheduled and ready every day. I’m also in charge of removing songs from our rotation after they’ve been playing for a while and replacing them with new songs to keep the music fresh. Christian music has been a part of my life for years, and having that be a big part of my job is so much fun!
