Sean McHenry

Associate Producer

SHORT BIO

I direct the evening broadcast show, where I also produce host interviews. Yeah, I usually pick the music.

What was your first job?

I would do odd jobs like baling hay back in high school. But the first actual paycheck I got was for cleaning an office on the weekends.

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

Computer crashes.

In your next life, what would your career be?

For some reason, I've always wanted to be a band manager for a struggling but vibrantly creative musician.

Fill in the blank: Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you ______.

Health care.

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

My headphones. A multipurpose tool.
