Nate Prudhon : Traffic Manager / DJ
My primary duty at KEXP is to manage traffic. Based on past conversations about my job, I know what you may be thinking, but no, unfortunately there is no helicopter involved. In broadcasting, “traffic” refers to the scheduled stuff you hear between all that fabulous music: underwriting, promos, public service announcements, ticket giveaways, Emergency Alert System tests, Web ads, etc.
Let me also say: I’m sorry to interrupt you from those sweet sweet tunes! But if not for traffic we wouldn’t be able to make money, stay legal, and let you know about stuff you might like to know about. So I make sure all that gets scheduled, produced, and aired like it should.
Beginning August 2009 I hit the airwaves as a KEXP dj.
