David Martin DJ Profile

I work for an analytics software/consulting startup in the West Loop at the moment, but in previous years I got a lot of exposure to public radio in various forms. I interned at WCAI/NAN in Woods Hole, MA (where Jay Allison of APM/Transom.org is based). I did various late night shifts for the freeform radio station at Wesleyan University when I was in school (mostly music). After school I interned for a while with Radio Lab at WNYC, helping with general production duties. And in grad school I did a regular weekend shift as an announcer/engineer at the local NPR affiliate in Athens, GA (WUGA). VERY briefly I did some freelance work with CNN's commercial radio unit, which got me a little exposure to news radio.

Though my career ended up moving in a different direction, I'd love to get the chance to get back into radio a few hours a week, particularly at a community-oriented place like CHIRP seems to be. Depending on what's needed/available, I'd love to help out either on the air or in audio production. That said, I'm not dead set on a particular role, so I'd be happy to learn more about the organization first to get a feel for how things work.
