Programming Traffic & Communication
what Kirby does at CPT12
I am responsible for assembling the play list that is imported into our automation system to be broadcast on 12.1. That process requires getting the right shows on and filling in between with all the promotional spots, FCC required information, short features, and our money-making announcements.
I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado, where I met my wife. My degree is in Mass Media Communications and Broadcast Journalism. Not wanting to leave Denver or take a job out of my field, I started volunteering at the fledgling KBDI in 1981. After a brief time, the volunteer work developed into part-time, then eventually, full time work. During my time at Colorado Public Television, as we’re now known, I’ve worked at four different locations, ending up at the 5 Points Media Center.
