Aaron Sharpe

Director of Development & Marketing

Aaron first volunteered with WNKU as a student in Northern Kentucky University’s Radio/Television program in 1998.  His first “job” was soliciting food from area restaurants for the fund drive, and although he always just wanted to be a DJ, the station manager at the time took note of Aaron’s ability to ask for things and thus offered him a paying job in Development in 1999. 

Aaron had to go outside of radio to fulfill his dream of being a DJ.  During baseball season, he spends his evenings and weekends as the DJ for the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Aaron has also worked dozens of freelance gigs in broadcast television, mostly as an audio engineer or assistant.  He’s worked on productions of everything from high school basketball tournaments to a TBS reality show to Super Bowl XLVI. 

When things slow down, Aaron will pick up a little work here and there as a voice actor, voicing anything from corporate training videos to national TV and radio spots.  Aaron has even had the privilege of filling in as the public address announcer for the Cincinnati Reds when needed.

Despite it all, WNKU remains closest to Aaron’s heart.  And while they still won’t let him on the air except to ask for money, he thinks it’s pretty cool that he gets to work with real rock ‘n roll DJ’s.
