Karen Goode is a Radio, Television and Broadcasting student at San Antonio College who expects to receive her AAS Degree in May of 2021. She hopes to have her own television show one day in the near future.
While studying at San Antonio College, I was inspired by the course Radio Experience I, to earn my own radio show called Soft Touch on the college station KSYM. Soft Touch aired every Monday night from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Soft Touch was aimed at the more middle to older audience, and featured mainly oldies but goodies.
I have loved cameras and writing and acting all of my life. I was fortunate enough to win a three-day trip on Power 93 FM to Minnetonka, Minnesota to meet and be in Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation Video, which was a wonderful experience.
I am doing an internship at NOWCastSA with Charlotte-Anne Lucas, and I am learning and enjoying every moment of it.
