Radio is a crazy world. Every weekday for the past 4 years, I've woken up at 4am (with the exception of waking up late a few times.. we all know how that ends lol) and have had the blessing to hang out with my friends and talk about life from 6-10am in front of a mic with the best listeners and friends listening in.
Yesterday after the show, I was offered an amazing opportunity that gave me the most mixed emotions I've ever experienced. A promotion within the company that I couldn't refuse came with the reality that my time on KISS FM and my mornings with Bender and Molly were ending. My whole life flipped upside down.
It's really rare to work in radio in your hometown. I've made countless friends in radio and very few of them actually grew up here. So the fact that I've been able to be apart of an amazing show that I grew up listening to is so special to me. I remember listening to Bender in the mornings as far back as middle school!
Bender has been such a massive, positive impact in my life. It's hard to put into words what he actually means to me. He's been there through my highs and lows, both professionally and personally. He's been my mentor, my teacher, my friend, and my biggest supporter. I've never had a person in my life who truly believes in me and appreciates me like he has. I wouldn't be where I am today without the faith that he's had in me.
Change has always been something that scares me; I'm so comfortable and happy in my position here.. but I know that growth never comes without change. So I'm embracing this change with the mindset that it's exactly what's meant to be. I can't say exactly where I'll be going yet- but I'm so excited and in the VERY NEAR future, I'll be able to announce it!
Until then.. you know the drill. Instagram/twitter: @KitKatFisher .. snapchat: KatFisherOnAir and Facebook/KatFisherOnAir
