There are KTSW employees that push it to the limit and further. Every month each of the station’s directors choose one or two people within their department that have stood out from their fellow employees.
These go-getters are recognized for their work and dedication with the honorary title of “Champion of the Month.”
I asked Megan Olson a few questions about winning this month’s award for her work with the Other Side Drive department. (Olson also works  with the station’s news department.)

 
Adam Cook: What is your major, class, position at KTSW and hobbies?
Megan Olson: I am a nutrition and dietetics major. I am a senior. My hobbies include hiking, traveling, conversing and listening to awesome talk radio.AC: How do you feel about earning the Champion Of The Month title?
MO: Pretty great. I’m hard on myself and I thought I was closer to getting fired than I was to receiving an award.

AC: Why did you join KTSW?
MO: Because I love talk radio and using radio as a medium for information and education (no visuals equals greater use of imagination).

AC: What have you gained/learned while working at KTSW?
MO: The experience has been invaluable. I’ve never worked with any audio equipment or in journalism. I learned a lot about what makes a good story and keeps the audience listening.

AC: What would you tell others about KTSW to motivate others to apply?
MO: Just do it. You won’t get another opportunity with so much freedom.

AC: Anything you would like to say to/about your department head?
MO: Fern (Fernando Espinosa) could make you smile while telling you that your grandma just died. He is a true leader and knows how to motivate his team.
