Amy O’Brien

    Amy is a native New Mexican. Born and raised in “the big city” of Albuquerque and a graduate of St. Pius X High School. It was during the summer before her junior year in high school that she decided to take a radio broadcasting class for extra credit (just in case she failed Chemistry in the upcoming year.) That was all it took to get her hooked. When applying for colleges she made sure to choose a school with a radio station that she’d actually have a chance to work. That’s how she ended up as the News Director and Program Director of KSMC in Moraga, CA. Amy has worked on virtually every format there is in the world of radio and has been on air in Albuquerque, Austin (TX) and Salt Lake City (UT). There is always music playing in the background because it’s hard to work without. She grew up listening to Big Band music (dad), Broadway Show Tunes (mom), Jazz and Country (Big Brother Sean) and Heavy Metal (Big Brother Terry), so her taste is extremely eclectic! Amy is married to someone else who makes his living talking and has a smart/sassy/kind/ beautiful daughter and adorable dog. When she’s not at work there’s a good chance she’s checking her daughter’s homework, leading her daughters scout troop or taking her daughter to dance classes. She’s definitely NOT cooking… that’s her husband’s job and he’s a fantastic chef!
