Hello everyone, my name is Ed Cole, and I’m the newest addition to the Pros2Preps team.
Let me give you a quick recap of myself…I was born and raised in Harrisburg, PA. I served in both the United States Marine Corps and the United States Navy. I served in Operation Desert Storm while in the Corps (Oooh Rah!)
I graduated from Shippensburg University with a BA in Communications/Journalism. My first gig in radio was at our campus radio station.
I’ve been in radio for over 20 years, and have loved every minute of it.
My family and I spent the past decade in the DC area before moving here to Arizona. I was the Executive Producer/Engineer for the Washington Redskins Radio Network. That was a lot of fun, traveling with the team and working the broadcasts.
I’ve done a radio tour since we’ve been here, working at KTAR, KGME and now at my current destination, Pros2Preps.
Since I’m new here, I’m getting my feet wet and seeing how things work here, as opposed to how things worked at my former employers.
I’m looking to do it all here at Pros2Preps (watch out Brad!) This seems like a great place to be and great people to work with (I already got my first free meal today, courtesy of Nails).
In addition to my duties here at P2P, I also work with the fine people at Westwood One. I engineer and produce college football, college basketball and NFL broadcasts there.
I just came back from doing a game in Manhattan, Kansas, where I witnessed the destruction of Kansas State at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners.
For those who didn’t have an ear to the ground, the score was 58-17! My crew, myself and the 50,000+ at the stadium saw an entertaining first half, which saw the Wildcats hang tough with the Sooners…but remember, there are two halves to a game, and the second half was the complete opposite of the first 30 minutes we witnessed.
Oklahoma stomped a mudhole in K-State (on their homecoming weekend no less). They scored 35 unanswered in the half, and thankfully for me and my guys, gave us clear sailing back to Kansas City and our hotel.
Landry Jones set a school record with 505 yards passing in that game and let the world and all the Oklahoma doubters know that they aren’t dead, following their loss to Texas Tech at home the week prior.
I am looking forward to the challenge of working at P2P and what the future holds. Come ride with us!!
