My name is Kent Crosby and I first arrived at the Radio Advertising Bureau in 1994. Right now, I manage the member database, produce reports, oversee most billing processes, dabble in collections, conduct training webinars for our Account Manager software, and often answer the Member Response hotline. I also water the occasional office plant and constantly complain about the temperature in my office.
The only non-radio job I've held as an adult was a truck strap salesman - for about three months.
There were only about 15 graduates of the Radio-TV-Film department at the University of Texas at Austin in the spring of 1993. I was one of them - and some guy by the name of Matthew McConaughey was another.
You might find it hard to believe, but I am a member of Mensa.
Most of my weekends are filled with playdates, kids' birthday parties, and bike rides to the park (you have no idea how difficult it is to find a helmet that will fit this giant melon of mine). And it's been years since I've seen a grown-up movie in the theater.
Favorite books: Anything and everything by Chuck Klosterman and Bret Easton Ellis. Favorite movies: GoodFellas, Boogie Nights, Raising Arizona
Favorite song: Either "Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding or "Number of the Beast" by Iron Maiden. Someone needs to create a format that would play both! Although, they'd have trouble turning a profit with just one listener.
