Shannyn Moore. Born Alaskan. Patriot. Constitutionalist. Lover of Freedom. Giving hell to the establishment. Standing up to fascists and tyranny…both foreign and domestic. Radio. Active. Truth.
I don’t believe in accidents. My grandmother got me into radio. I was on my way to Virginia for her funeral. While on the plane, I met the owner of a local progressive station. He offered me a job. There were a lot of growing pains for both me and the station. When I was fired, I knew I wasn’t done with radio. Progressive radio has nothing to do with what’s on your business card. It has to do with who you are on the air, and, more importantly, who you are off the air. I don’t play me on the radio.
