Road To Stardom

Sam worked in a bottle shop for a while, and he would constantly tell his friends about his desire to work in radio. His friends encouraged him to go for it, so he simply showed up at the community radio station 3CR and told them that was interested in working there. Sam got a job working the front desk and the rest is history.

Eventually, he was able to put his football background to use in contributing to sports reports. With the networking skills he got from working the front desk, he got into a conversation with a radio show producer, and he eventually became the co-host of Triple R’s Breakfasters for five years!
