He’s even been involved in RF engineering and IT, specializing in configuration of digital automation remote voice tracking systems at one point in his career. Ed was one of 12 people nationwide who were chosen by Google to spend time at their California headquarters to participate in the design and launch of their digital automation after it was acquired from Scott Studios. Although Ed’s background for about 40 years was strongly anchored in music radio, he says the switch to news and information was a natural. Ed has been involved in “spoken word” radio since 2012.
