“I think authenticity is something that I really want out of my sports radio that I don’t hear a whole lot.” – Isaac Ropp

Imagine latching onto a radio station, virtually right out of college, and sticking with that same radio station your entire career.

Maybe you crave an opportunity like that one. Or perhaps that sounds boring to you.

In Isaac Ropp’s case, though, it was the best of both worlds.  Isaac went to a radio broadcasting class in college, talked to a local sports radio pro and worked all the way up from asking a superior for feedback on a sports update demo to afternoon drive host in Portland.

And he’s been at the same station for 15 years.

Hear more about Ropp’s secrets behind those successes and more in this episode of the PASR.
