Jordan Rich has been a staple in the broadcasting industry for decades. As the long-running host of WBZ Radio’s The Jordan Rich Show, his warm style and comforting voice reached hundreds of thousands of listeners across the nation and beyond.
Jordan will speak candidly about his experiences behind the microphone, from his college days to his years with WBZ. As he discusses his book, “ON-AIR: My 50-Year Love Affair with Radio” you will meet those who mentored Jordan as he touches on his love of theatre and music, the mercurial world of radio employment (and unemployment), the support and love of his family, and one key friendship as rock-solid as Mt. Rushmore.
Jordan will talk about creating a small voice-over recording business, entertaining for years on the road, and valuable life lessons learned in and out of the studio. Jordan will also offer a revealing look at what it’s been like to interview some of the biggest stars to come through Boston over the years.
His story is personal. Jordan will share insight into the demons that nearly derailed his career, as well as personal tragedies he was forced to overcome. But in the end, those challenges only helped to strengthen his love affair with radio that still exists today. Join us in this engaging lecture. Perhaps it will inspire up and coming broadcasters out there!
Note: This is an in-person lecture at Brookline High School from 7:00-8:30pm.
