Kyle Stewart has worked in the radio industry since she was in her twenties. At that time, everyone on the air was required to hold what was referred to as a “First Phone”– that is, a First Class Radiotelephone Operator’s License (now discontinued by the FCC).
After taking and passing the First Phone test, Kyle landed her first job as air talent with some radio engineering thrown in, working for KBRR in Leadville. She also worked in Denver as a weekend transmitter â€œbabysitterâ€ engineer.
Over the next several years Kyle worked as air talent in Key West, Florida (Key Rock 16) and Maui, Hawaii (FM 101).
When Kyle moved back to Colorado, she bought a townhouse in Carbondale (where her aunt and uncle live) and settled down. Tired of being a â€œstarving DJâ€, she accepted a position at a local radio station as an Account Executive and was there for almost 10 years.
In 2001, Kyle was offered the position of Marketing Consultant and several years later added “Senior” to her title. Don’t think the term refers to her age, Kyle still feels as young as she once was, spinning records and “rocking the air chair” in some of the country’s most beautiful resorts. She still likes to visit some of those same places, Last summer, Kyle flew to Cancun, Mexico then took a “Collectivo” van to Chiquila…on the top of the Yucatan Penisula…then a motorboat across the bay to Isla Holbox…a spit of an island 1 mile wide by 10 miles long…There on Isla Holbox, Kyle spent the week jumping into the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Ocean to swim with the Whale Sharks….the worlds biggest fish….A 20 foot-long vegetarian “front-end loader”….sweeping through the top of the water and taking in krill or plankton. It was the thrill of a lifetime to quote a cliche.
