Introduction I’ve worked in audio production since I age 13 year when I landed a summer job as a production assistant at the University of Bridgeport’s WPKN radio station. It was there that I discovered my gift for audio. I continued to perfect my craft during six years of undergraduate and graduate work at Hampton University. After college, I spent nearly 12 years at National Public Radio, with some of the best newsmakers in the business, meeting deadlines, producing quality audio during tense situations with tough deadlines. When I left NPR, I started my own business, producing podcasts for media giants like The Washington Post Interactive, including their on-line magazines Slate and The Root, as well as for smaller, yet equally important organizations like The Interactivity Foundation, The Journey For Justice Alliance, Solidarity Is This, The National Association of School Nurses, and The Communities for Just Schools Fund. After 32 years in radio and 1000s of programming hours behind me, I still love audio. | Abdullah Rufus | The Podcast President | www.bedrockcommunications.com | (e) arufus@bedrockcommunications.com | (ph)703 624-2167
