Member Spotlight – Colleen Dick

What is your favorite song?
This was definitely a difficult question because it is so hard to choose.  My current favorite is probably “What A Beautiful Name” by Hillsong.

What is the last book you’ve read?
“Fervent” by Priscilla Shirer. I went through the book with another lady from church recently.  The focus on prayer came at such a strategic time.

What led you to a career in radio?
When looking through a list of possible majors for college – broadcasting sounded like fun.  Looking back now – I see how God placed radio strategically in my life.

What advice would you give people new to the business?
Be willing to learn all aspects of the industry – not just a specific role.

Give a shoutout to someone who is making a difference in radio and what are they doing to make an impact?
Another difficult one.  I echo the names that have already been mentioned.  I will add John Summerville from TWR.   I appreciate his work with stations in the US coming together to help raise money for stations around the world to reach people for Christ.  Our station participated in fundraising for the upgrade to the station on Bonaire.  It was a blessing to be there at the ribbon cutting in January.

How do you refresh your creative energy at work?
Bounce ideas off other staff members.  Make the occasional run for Starbucks.

Amazon Echo or Google Home?
I have an Echo Dot in my office and the staff likes to ask Alexa questions.

What is your favorite part of your job?
Hearing stories of changed lives.

Who is your favorite air personality not on your staff and why do you like them?
Kim Bindel of Life 101.9.  I became familiar with her when she was on the AM show on Salem Radio Network in Nashville.  I enjoyed hearing the God Thoughts she produced.  Then I had the privilege of meeting her at an NRB lunch.   I admire her resilience.  She is always an encouragement.

What was your last non-industry job?
I worked merchandise in the Animation Courtyard at Disney MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) back when I was interning in Orlando.

Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career.
For me – it is the daily reminders  of being part of ministry and the impact on people’s lives that I pray brings significance to my life’s work.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Something like Growing Forward Green. Green speaks of growth and newness.
