Reaching For The Gold
A publishing journalist and a college instructor Harriet finds that these two careers have much in common as they both demand honing communication skills every day. Harriet instructs her students almost exclusively online and her writing is published in print and over the web. Times change but the need to speak to your audience by being concise, yet intriguing, is key.
Guest, David Spero
David Spero had an early start in the music/ media business: holding cue cards on the Upbeat show that his father, Herman Spero, produced. And by the time that he had graduated from high school, he had already had years of experience as an “on air” radio personality. During that tenure, he played at least a role in helping Bruce Springsteen and other rock luminaries ignite their career.
He served as Senior Director of Programming for the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where he set up many shows and creative events. And he was subsequently inducted as one of the Radio/Television Broadcasters Hall of Fame of Ohio's Class of 2007.
Spero now works as a manager for musicians, having many stories to tell from his unique vantage point as both an observer and participant. And because of his adventures, he notes that while he is in his 60s as the calendar measures those things, he is actually only 26 and holding. His picture proves his point.
