The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show hosted the first-ever KiddNation Virtual Career Day on Monday, May 1, from 9 a.m.-10:00 a.m. CST. The cast and crew made themselves available to students and teachers in classrooms across the country, to talk to kids about what they do and to take questions from them. Students and teachers were able to email, text, and call in to ask show hosts Kellie, J-Si, Big Al, and Jenna. The show’s production, marketing, video, social media, IT/engineering professionals and YEA Networks’ CEO George Laughlin were all on hand as well.
Kids and classes that weren’t able to participate live are able to view the video of the KiddNation Virtual Career Day program posted at https://www.kiddnation.com/career/.
J Si said: “I wish we had something like this when I was in school. The number one request we get is to speak at schools for Career Day. Unfortunately, our schedules or distance can get in the way. This is the best way to eliminate those obstacles and help kids learn that radio has many positions to fit different personalities. In addition to DJs, our show relies on professionals in engineering, sales, marketing, and production… even social media for the Instagram lovers. The KiddNation Virtual Career Fair will help students realize that there are many paths to take in the realm of entertainment.”
