As I tried to think of a way to show you the different people that work at APR, it hit me. Our desks. We are all as different as our desks reveal us to be. I took a picture of something personal on everyone's desk and you can see it here. There may be a few things you notice.
First, you may be surprised at how few of us there are: eight full time employees, plus six more who split their time between Alabama Public Radio and the Center for Public Television. Add in a few part-time show hosts (who don't even get a desk) and an ever changing group of college students and thousands hear APR daily from Tennessee to the Gulf of Mexico.
Also, the wide variety of items does reflect how different we all are. We come in all ages from a wide diversity of backgrounds. But we have in common the desire to bring to our audience the best possible product we possibly can. Of course, we can only do that with the help of our listeners.
