Dear Clear Country, I have some news to share with you.
I have decided to move home to Indiana for an opportunity that wouldn’t be possible without YOU. Words cannot describe the emotions I’m feeling while writing this so before I go any further – THANK YOU!
My Clear 99 story started in April of 2012 when I applied to be Scotty’s co-host on the morning show. After a few phone calls, a road trip to Como (and some Shakespeare’s Pizza) – I was hooked! I packed up my things and moved a little over 360 miles away from everything I’d ever known to follow a dream.
THAT was a smart decision! These past five years in Mid Missouri have been incredibly rewarding – CMN Radiothons, hanging out at Tiger Tailgates, our Back to School Carpool, the Honor Flight Radiothon, all the concerts at the Blue Note, water-gun fights on the first Bussin’ it to Busch trip, parading through Ashland during the Cattleman Days Rodeo, LOTS of laughs on the Garth Brooks bus trip to St. Louis, MidMo Smile Day, reading at schools in the community…I could go on and on.
The people in this community won my heart and there are so many things that I’m going to miss! Clear 99 is such a special station and it’s all because of you. It’s been an honor to join you each morning with Scotty and I’m so grateful for the kindness and love you’ve shown me – I will cherish that forever.
To the Clear Crew – Scotty, Josh, Jamie, Aric, Catryna – and everyone at Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group, I can’t thank you enough for believing in me. I’ve learned so much from all of you and I am so blessed to call you all family.
As I take this next step in my career, know that there will always be a special place in my heart for Columbia Missouri. I’m very excited for what’s ahead and I’m looking forward to coming back for a visit.
With a whole lot of love,
Cara Beth (…and the cat)
