Well this is it, my final day here at 96.1 KISS FM, and it comes extremely bittersweet. The last 8 1/2 years have hands down been the greatest years of my life, and I simply wanted to say thank you. You have all been a part of my life, seen milestone moments for me personally and made me feel so incredibly welcomed and loved that I don't know I can ever find that again.
You were in my life when I got married, you were there when I had my first child, you came out to Kissmas Wishes in force and helped us take care of this community, you showed up to every party we ever threw. Above all, you never left our side.
There are simply no words I can say or type that can ever thank you enough for everything the last 8+ years, so there's no sense in trying. All I can say is thank you, again, for the millionth time and hope that I'll see you all once again down the road.
You're the absolute best Northern Colorado and you will hold a special place in me forever.
Be good, continue to take care of each other, and of course, keep it locked to 96.1 KISS FM forever. I know I will.
And on my birthday, I bring you KISS moment #1. In 2011 and 2012, we did something that has been achieved by very few radio stations at the Colorado Broadcasters Awards (unless you're 9News, then you do this every year). We won back to back Station of the Year trophies. The reason this is the most memorable moment for me is because not only did it represent the hard work we put into making this station what it is, but at the end of the day, it was for you. Everything we do here at KISS is for you, and that told us we were doing the best job we could do for you.
Oh man, KISS moment #2.....started out as an innocent staff trip to Vegas. We all just needed to get away and have some fun, and there's no better place than Vegas to do that. We achieved exactly that, and turned into one of the most ill advised moments in KISS history. Unfortunately, I can't elaborate anymore on the subject as to protect those guilty, and innocent :)
