A Sad Farewell To Douglas County

As quickly as it all began, my time in Roseburg, Oregon has come to an end.

One week in November, two years ago, I contacted a man about a job at a radio station. Soon, I was planning a move three hours south from Portland to take over as a reporter, news anchor, and play-by-play announcer with Brooke Communications.

My one year and eight months with the group there in Roseburg taught me plenty. I became a better broadcaster, a better writer, and more importantly, friends with many new people. I will always look back at this time with great fondness, no matter how abruptly it ended.

I want to thank Pat, Brian, Kyle and everyone at Brooke Communications for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow. I hope they enjoyed my time there as much as I did.

Now, it’s on to the the familiar chore of searching for a new job. Options are limited in Roseburg, so I will be looking elsewhere and moving at the end of the month. My focus will be on staying in the Northwest and staying in broadcasting, but my interests may take me to other locations and jobs possibly away from a mic.

If you happen to hear or know of any opportunities in sports or news broadcasting, or just sports in general, please feel free to let me know. Leave comments here, contact me via email at joeykeeran@gmail.com., or via any other form of social media.

I appreciate all the support from family and friends during this endeavor. Without all of you, this would be a much more arduous situation.

    Keep working towards that dream Joe! I always try to remind myself it’s not about where you end up but about the journey you take… Or something like that. Anyways, continue to be that awesome guy I remember growing up and I’m sure you will find what you are looking for.
