I'm gonna write this, but how many people will really care lol. I personally don't think I've been through enough in life to really have a true biography to write but... Who knows. Here we go...
My name is Clarke Jones, I'm 25 years old and I'm trying to figure out what to do in life! I am currently working at WIKS 101.9 Kiss FM in New Bern, NC. I graduated from East Carolina University as a Biology major and Communications minor. Going into radio during my junior year of college, after waking up thinking, "I should do radio, I think I have something to say that's worth being heard." I originally wanted to do plastic surgery which is why Biology was my major. I would still love to someday do to medical school, but I'm not jumping into it anytime soon.
I started off working as an on-air personality at the school radio station, WZMB 91.3, for about 2-3 years. This position helped me gain my position at my current station. I began interning at Kiss a few months after taking a tour of the station with the school station.
I currently co-host in the afternoons with Jay Blaze every weekday from 2p-6p. At 3:20p & 5:20p I have a segment called, "Trending Topics," speaking on the top stories happening locally and in entertainment. I am also the midday chick at Kiss as well. Talk about the grind being real! lol
I spent some time co-hosting mornings at a former sister station, 107.9 WNCT Greatest Hits of the 70s, 80s and 90s for a few months. And sometimes you may also catch me filling in at our other current sister station, V103, Carolina's Best Mix. What can I say, I love my job!
As for my long term goal, VOICE ACTING! Ive always loved cartoons, so my goal is to be a character one day! Ive always loved reading, and as an adult I fell in love with audio books to fill my 45 minute drive to work everyday (Yes! You read right lol)
I know I enjoy talking to people about their lives and random topics. Having good, funny and serious conversation with cool people is what I enjoy most. You learn so much just from talking to people. So many random things can be brought up and learned, just from starting a simple conversation. I enjoy helping people, and giving others a platform to share their talents and ideas. I am simply a people person. I am a introvert that can be social. I love people but I also love my space. I'm a chill girl. I can hang with the guys and have a dope conversation about anything, or I can relax with the girls and gossip for days.
Diversity is Key! Variety is the spice of Life! So this is my journey! Enjoy!
