Shownotes

This time, we feature Nashville’s Multimedia Queen.

WSM-AM's Eryn Cooper, a multimedia journalist, morning show producer, emerging radio personality, and self-proclaimed "professional fan." Eryn discusses her career path, how she's advanced from radio newbie to assistant brand manager and on-air talent in just two years, and her current roles working for the Grand Ole Opry, Circle Country TV, and the Coffee, Country, and Cody Morning Show. She’s the kind of person who can “do it all”, from production and hosting to normalizing the “fangirl to professional fan” pipeline
