Years later, in a moment of whimsy before a sorority dance at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, she asked a trivia question as a college radio station DJ and offered herself as the prize. Every phone light on the board lit up-Margie knew this radio thing could work for her!
Margie’s first job in radio was at a rock and roll station in Aspen, Colorado, where she also worked in local television. The small town with international flair offered the opportunity for interviews with a number of interesting characters. Her days were filled…news in the morning…skiing in the afternoon…waitressing (to make ends meet) at night. She quit her first news job to backpack around the world for seven months spending the most time in Southeast Asia.
Margie returned to Colorado as news director for the Rocky Mountain Radio Network…and also anchored for news/talk powerhouse KOA in Denver. There were also stints at KVON in Napa and KGO in San Francisco before Margie landed at KCBS. She has served as the President of the California-Nevada AP TV/Radio Association, and has won awards from the AP, RTNDA and the Colorado Broadcasters Association.
Margie counts covering the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, among her top news experiences. Margie took a year hiatus from KCBS, lived down-under and did freelance work for CBS Radio Network.
Margie enjoys the outdoors…skiing, hiking and kayaking…she also enjoys a game of tennis, gardening and a good glass of wine. Traveling is limited these days, but she enjoys time in Tahoe with her husband and daughter.
