She Noticed

Credo is a statement of religious belief, such as the Apostles’ Creed. And while I do not hesitate in proclaiming Jesus as my Lord and Savior, the personal credo I adopted about a decade ago outwardly is less religious. It’s faith-based, but it is a mantra that can be claimed by the believer and non-believer alike.

Some background: I am a redneck idiot that has learned every lesson the hard way. I’ve lied, cheated, stolen, fallen, philandered, and failed. I’ve been filled with envy, pride, greed, jealousy, lust, gluttony, and fear. I’ve been arrogant, conceded, opinionated, closed-minded, boisterous and brash. In short – I’m a sinner.

Yes, our roots are in radio, but our endeavor expands into websites and podcasts and streaming audio and streaming video. Digital. That which feeds to not only your ears, but your eyes. We’re on your speakers and on your Writer’s Block I by Drew Coffman, on Flickrscreens. We’re everywhere, baby! And we truly are a multi-media company – through our multi-media platform we reach one-quarter billion consumers a month worldwide. That’s a lot of ears and eyes!

In that I am a personality for this media company, the expectation is that I contribute to this media frenzy. I agree with the expectation. I am challenged by it and accept the expectation. But it scares the crap out of me. Here’s why.
