I landed in Clovis, NM in 2013, after living in Gulf Breeze, Florida for 8 whole years (the longest I’ve ever lived somewhere. I’m a military kid…I’ve been all around this great country.) I have to be honest…I was not very optimistic about moving to Clovis…especially after finally being able to start growing some roots in a single place. But after some time…I got over it. I decided that Clovis was going to be what I made it to be…so I could either make it no fun, or lots and lots of fun.
Once I adopted that attitude, my entire view of the town changed dramatically. I started to see just how tight-knit of a community Clovis truly is. After a couple years of being incredibly indecisive on what I wanted to do with my life, I decided to stay here in Clovis after my parents got stationed in DC. I went on a 7,000 mile motorcycle trip around the country, bought myself a trailer, made sure the clutch on my 1998 Chevy Prizm was going to make it through the winter, and I started my adventure.
One day…I was working at my job at a local restaurant, and a guest came in. As I was helping her with her take-out order…she mentioned to me that I should look into radio. This blew me away, because THE VERY DAY before I had been considering the radio business as an idea worth looking into (especially considering two of my role-models, Ronald Reagan and Mike Rowe, started in radio.) I took this as a sign and started looking into it. The folks at Mix 107.5 were gracious (or crazy) enough to give me a chance…they hired me…and here I am. Camper Kyle at your service! Carpe Diem!
