Bri Johns - Student Pastor, Director of Student Programming I thought I had landed the job of my dreams as Producer for the Just Plain Mark and Zippy show on Radio Disney while in college. Nationally syndicated radio, ABC Radio Networks – I had “arrived.” I applied through a newspaper listing (take that, Internet!) and was chosen over a thousand applicants. My job consisted of keeping time, breaking for music a... Read More...
