While meeting with the radio station’s program director, I also met our newest staff member: Kelly. She’s taking on the massive task of bringing News Talk 780 into the 21st century as our social-media specialist and consultant.
She and I had only known of each other through blogging and Facebook. As we shook hands, she questioned, “Oh, so you’re Dash Darby?”
I immediately thought. “How the hell did she know I used to be a sprinter?”
Then she explained: “You always sign your news postings on KOH’s Facebook page with a dash mark before your last name.”
Mystery solved — and now — I have a new nickname.
