~ Roxie Moorman, Account Executive

Woof Boom Radio has allowed me to spread my wings. I started out as a Sales Assistant, and over the last few years my career has evolved, and I am now the Sales Creative Associate. Although I still assist the sales team, I now lead the charge in writing copy that gets results, am able to be a producer when it’s needed, been a project manager on a couple large events, and I get to co-host a show on WMUN called Page Turners: The Broadcast Book Club. I am very fortunate to work for Woof Boom Radio.”
