Mariners Play-by-Play Broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith visits KMIH 88.9 The Bridge
Mercer Island, WA, February 2, 2024 - Seattle Mariners play-by- play broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith took to the airwaves of KMIH 88.9 The Bridge for an hour on Friday morning to talk baseball with student host Dylan Shobe.
Goldsmith stayed to speak to the first period ABRO (Applied Broadcast Radio Operations) class. This class consists of third and fourth year broadcasting students who are considering careers in broadcast media and they were treated to some excellent insight this morning.
Goldsmith discussed the focused pathway, hard work and dedication it takes to rise to the Major League level and also stressed how important it is to be a person others want to work with.
In addition Goldsmith provided tips on how to be comfortable in the announcer's seat, how to keep your audience listening even if the game becomes a blowout, and shared how he prepares material in advance so his broadcast will sound great no matter what the outcome of the game might be.
You can listen to the student produced live morning show "Breakfast on the Bridge" weekday mornings at 8am on 88.9 FM as well as hear great interviews and podcasts, including Shobe's "Shobewaves" podcast on demand at kmih.org.
