Although he likes to remind his co-workers that he is the youngest member of the full time staff, Aaron has the distinction of actually being the old guy at WNKU just because he’s been there forever. He 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 rock ‘n roll DJ, the station manager at the time took note of Aaron’s ability to ask for things and get them and thus offered him a paying job in Development.
Aaron has been with WNKU ever since but has always maintained a 2nd job and sometimes a 3rd, 4th and 5th job, just to keep things interesting.
During baseball season, Aaron gets to fulfill the dream of being a DJ by doing just that for the Cincinnati Reds. If ever you’re pleasantly surprised to hear Phish or a local band or some artist you typically only hear on WNKU over the PA at the ball park, you now know why.
Over the years, 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. Just don't tell Chuck Miller that he's an "audio guy."
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.
