Welcome Jill Thomas! 
Last week Martie Cordaro introduced us to new member Jill Thomas.  Jill Thomas grew up in Ashland, NE, in a family of horse racing, horse showing, and rodeos. And that path ultimately became intertwined with her life in radio. Her radio career began over 30 years ago as an intern for a morning radio show in Phoenix, Az.
Over the years, Jill has found herself handling nearly every role you can find within the radio industry, from intern to owner, including hosting a successful morning show in Omaha with Pat for 17 years.
In 2019, Jill co-founded Parkville Media, a podcast/audio production company with Pat because she realized the great opportunity in helping businesses and individuals with a passion share their stories and messages in their own voices. 
When she’s not at work, you can find Jill playing a round of golf, target shooting, or spending time with her rescues...a German Shepherd and three cats.  Welcome, Jill! 
Congratulations to Dick Sturgeon who was recognized by Engagement Chair John Mlnarik 2 weeks ago for 31 years of perfect attendance! Congratulations to Martie Cordaro who was recognized for 4 years of perfect attendance.
