I’ve been in radio for nearly 23 years, I’ve been a dad for nearly 6.
For the first 17 years of that equation, I was quite comfortable with putting my name, and face everywhere and anywhere I could for exposure. As early as my second year in broadcasting I was writing a column for the local paper with my mug attached to the byline each week. By my third year I was freelancing on tv. I started blogging in 1996, and I’ve been telling stories ever since.
It shouldn’t come as too much of a shock, then, that I’m not afraid to put my kids out there too. In addition to being plastered all over my blogs, my boys have been on the radio, in the newspaper, and on tv – and none of it bothers them. Okay, they’re 5 1/2 and 3, not much will bother them, but they get a kick out of seeing themselves on tv, in a newspaper, or hearing themselves on the radio.
