Bryce Kint!gh looks to future through radio By Sarah Hoicomb Bryce Kintigh, a junior at Superior High School is gaining work experi- ence which he expects will help with his career choice. In mid-March, he job shadowed with Billy Wolf, a Kearney radio sta- tion disc jockey, During the five hours he was with Wolf, he operated the radio station's control board, selected music for broadcast, talked on the air and read public service announcements. Commenting on the experience he said, "I enjoyed it. I would like to do it again." It wasn't his first radio experi- ence. Kintigh, has been employed by KRFS Radio, Superior for approxi- mately one year. At the local station, he records weather announcements and is on the air live with gospel and church programming. Kintigh was interested in becoming a radio personality before he started working for KRFS. The job shadow- ing experience strengthened his inter- est. As a radio broadcaster he said, "I make a difference in people' s lives and people look to me for information." In addition to radio, Kintigh is in- terested in meteorology and would like to become a meteorologist. He cur- rently serves as an amateur weather spotter and is attending classes to learn more about weather observation.
