Alum Joe Romagna's Journey from Radio to Elementary School Principal

Thursday, August 07, 2014
ONE DUBLIN -- He completed a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting and Electronic Communication Arts at San Francisco State University. While he may have dreamed of leading/working with students someday, the lure to broadcasting was irresistible. Through his passion and guile, he landed as on air at 960 AM KABL/San Francisco in 1997. During this time, he worked with some Bay Area radio legends Jim Lange and Carter B. Smith and then ultimately landed his own time slot — spinning classics and swing tunes. It was almost surreal. But, as in many media industries, the station was sold and the format was changed. He quickly followed his heart and managed special events for the Humane Society Silicon Valley for two years.
