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.

Ways to Connect

Today only, you can become a sustaining member of WNKU for a contribution of just $4 per month or a one time gift of $48, and we’ll send our new "Discover Music" pint glass, normally only available for $5/month.

Until noon today only, you can make a contribution of $10 a month to WNKU and receive the Eton FR1 Emergency Radio.   The radio is small enough to keep in an emergency kit or glovebox, but pack a ton of features and power.

My, my, my!  What a deal this is!  You support WNKU with a contribution of $20 a month (a fraction of the cost of cable TV), and we'll send you all three of our new "Discover Music" items - the pint glass, the t-shirt, AND the American Apparel hoodie!

Remember how you used to make a mix tape to introduce your friends to your favorite new music?  Well, WNKU is kind of like that, which is why we're introducing our new "Discover Music" mix tape pint glass and t-shirt.

Made by Bella-Canvas with a blend of polyester and combed and ring spun cotton, the stylish unisex shirt is super-soft and fits the way a modern fashion t-shirt should.

The pint glass is pretty self-explanatory.  It's made of glass, and you put beer in it.  Then you drink the beer.

WNKU's fall membership drive gets underway tomorrow morning at 7:00 am, but you can help us get a jump on things by making your contribution today.  We have a couple of very cool incentives to encourage you to get on board now and support WNKU.
