I have been with KPBS for more than 30 years…a long time. And in that time I’ve had the pleasure of working with extraordinary people; which brings me to one of my fondest recollections of KPBS.

The occasion was a field trip to KPBS for my daughter’s 7th grade class. So many colleagues helped to make this a memorable experience for the kids. The class was able to see a live taping of a video conference in the “old” studio. Afterwards, many of my co-workers stayed and took part in Q&A. The 7th graders were an inquisitive group, wanting to know what the KPBS crew did, how KPBS differed from a commercial TV/FM station and the different job opportunities in the industry.

Studio C was the home for virtually all of KPBS' live and taped TV productions from the station's founding until 1998, when the new facility became operational.

Overall the class had a great time scoping out the new and old digs of KPBS and meeting wonderful people. And my daughter? Well, she’s joined the team here at KPBS too. Proof that KPBS really is a like a big family!
