Introduction I’ve worked in audio production since I was 13 years old when I landed a summer job as a production assistant at the University of Bridgeport’s WPKN radio station. It was there that I discovered my gift for audio. I continued to perfect my craft during six years of undergraduate and graduate work at Hampton University. After college, I spent nearly 15 years at National Public Radio, learning with some of the best newsmakers in the business, working as a news team, meeting deadlines, producing quality audio during tense situation with tough deadlines. When I left NPR, I started my own business, producing podcasts for media giants like The Washington Post Interactive, including their on-line magazines Slate and The Root, as well as for smaller, yet equally important organizations like The Interactivity Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to citizen awareness. After thirty-two years in radio and 1000s of programming hours behind me, I still love audio. | hold fast | Abdullah Rufus | The Podcast President | Bedrock Communications, Inc. | www.bedrockcommunications.com | (e) arufus@bedrockcommunications.com | (ph)703 624-2167 United States | Eastern Time Zone.
