Over the next few weeks, Fortress staff members will be giving you a look into what they do at the station on a day-to-day basis. Next up is news director David Horner.
With a look at local headlines…That’s normally how I introduce myself everyday as part of the Fortress newscast, but I wanted to give you a little more detail than just my name and tell you about myself and what I do here at the Fortress. As the News Director for 94.3 the Fortress, every day I am in charge of the news that gets played when you are driving home at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30. If I am not personally doing the news I oversee and help others learn how the process works and what it takes to gather and put together newscasts.
I enjoy doing news because it keeps me involved in what is going on and I love giving a service back to the community. Even though I have fun at my job, in my free time I enjoy doing just about anything outside, playing recreational sports, and spending time with friends and family. In the future I do hope to pursue a career in radio broadcasting, where that is I just don’t know yet. Until then, For WIWU News I’m David Horner.
