What do you do for Vocalo Radio?
I manage Vocalo’s social media platforms, edit and manage web content, take photos, create digital graphics and write our bi-weekly newsletter, The Goods (sign up here!). I also help select songs to be featured on our “In Rotation” and “Poised to Break Through” monthly playlists.
What’s the best part of your job?
I love being able to give small artists a voice and a platform — especially local artists. Oftentimes Vocalo is the first place to cover, interview or feature a new, up-and-coming or lesser-known artist … knowing that we’ve helped amplify someone’s voice is arguably the most rewarding part of the job.
What do you love about Chicago?
There’s so much going on in the city constantly. No matter what you like to do or you’re in the mood for, there’s something happening you’d be interested in checking out. So much food, music, art, everything. So many people to meet and things to experience.
