Hey ya’ll! My name’s Sara and I am super excited to be part of the 2018 Summer Road Crew at Blackburn Radio! I can’t wait to be traveling across Chatham-Kent this summer to chat with Chatham’s finest! I am a grade 12 student at CKSS, but as of this past January I was able to graduate a semester ahead of my peers. In the fall, I will be attending Nipissing University to pursue an English degree. Then, I’m off to law school to become a lawyer! Some fun facts about me are that I love to sing and dance, I play guitar, and I can jump on a pogo stick with no hands! I  absolutely love to talk, so if you see me out with the Summer Road Crew (just look for the curly headed one!), don’t be afraid to stop in and say hi!

Hey everyone I’m Ryan and I am very excited to be a part of the Blackburn Summer Road Crew Team. I recently graduated from the University of Windsor, where I received my Bachelor’s of Arts Honours  in Communication, Media, and Film. I am a co-owner of the wedding video company Take A Vow Productions, and I  create commercials for local businesses in the Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent communities. I grew up attending all the summer events in the community and am very happy to be apart of them again. I am also looking forward to promoting the events with my awesome team! I love classic rock, sunny days and eating cereal without milk.

Hey! My name’s Emma and I’m ecstatic to be working with the Summer Road Crew! I just completed my fourth year at Brock University in Media and Communication Studies and I’m back at Brock next year studying Political Science! Aquatics have always been a huge part of my life, as I was a competitive swimmer for 10 years and I’ve been a lifeguard for the past 7 years, working at the YMCA and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent! My love for puns could be considered a punishment, and I love to knit and embroider! Sara, Ryan and I cannot wait to meet all of you at the exciting events occurring around Chatham-Kent this summer! If you see us, please come say hi!
