My journey with Townsquare Media began in the fall of 2012 when I was hired to co-host the 98.1 The Hawk Morning Show. A decade later, I am still one-half of the Hawk Morning Show and am also now the Brand Manager of 98.1 The Hawk and Kiss 104.1 and the Director of Digital and Radio Content for Townsquare Media Binghamton.

I am humbled to be the very first female in the history of Binghamton radio to hold the position of “overseer” of four radio stations and there is no doubt that the reason I was given this incredible opportunity is that I work for Townsquare Media, a company that believes in its people. Townsquare Media wants its people to grow and thrive and gives them the tools and encouragement to do so.

How incredible it is to work for a company that lives up to its “You Matter” slogan. How refreshing that the slogan isn’t just some corporate boardroom jargon.

My company strives to set its employees up for success while understanding the need to balance work life with outside/family life. My company believes in diversity and mental health awareness. My company rewards its employees for giving back to our community, and my company, from the top down, actually takes time to contact its employees at every level to congratulate them on work well done or to reach out a hand when someone falters.

I chatted with some of my co-workers to gauge their feelings on what makes a successful workplace and each of them mentioned the importance of working for a company that genuinely cares. Townsquare Media cares for its employees just as much as it cares for our community. We are the town square of our communities. We are the voices, the storytellers, the news breakers, and the friendly faces at events and in daily life around town. We live and breathe our community and our company lives and breathes us - that is something uniquely refreshing in a world where many feel like they’re just a number.

When my son was born, the CEO of my company reached out to me with a personal congratulations and worked with our HR department to allow new moms more time off with their babies. When I took a week off to donate my bone marrow through Be the Match, my company compensated me for my time even when they didn’t have to and noted that there is nothing more important than helping our fellow man. These are just a few examples of the dozens upon dozens of ways that Townsquare Media has made me feel like my life and my contributions to the world around me matter to them.

If you’ve been thinking about making a career change or looking for a position within your current line of work but are hesitant because you don’t know what the work culture will be like, I’d like to encourage you to take a look at the positions we have available at Townsquare Media Binghamton. I speak from the heart when I tell you that you will have to work hard, but you will be rewarded and you will work not only for a company but also for a local group of people who genuinely care for your wellbeing and want to see you be the very best you can be.
