John McGowan is a man who can do it all. He works as a sales rep for Sandy Motors, films Auto Show TV, and runs his own company, Johnny Mac's Jamming DJ Service, at the young age of 22.
McGowan, a recent graduate of Mitchell College, sat down with me to discuss his success. His pride is his business, a DJ service, voted as one of the best wedding DJ's in Rhode Island.
"My favorite part about being a DJ is having the ability to be at each and every event. I enjoy making sure that every event goes off without a hitch and that the client is pleased. I enjoy seeing people have a good time."
John graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communication. During his college career, he helped to bring forth Mitchell College's own radio station. From freshman year to senior year, he was station manager.
"Being station manager was a great experience. I had a team of dedicated staff that I worked with day in and day out to make the station sound good both on and off the air. At events, it showed me the ins and outs of radio with both production and operations. I feel that it prepared me for the real world by having me deal with purchasing, management, keeping staff in line and helping me grow to better myself as someone who is in charge."
John has been doing radio for most of his life, beginning his freshman year of high school at Bishop Hendricken in Warwick, RI.
"My entire world is radio and I've worked so long to better myself with it. When I started doing Auto Show TV, it was difficult to change my speed and the way I read the script. I had to work to make it seem like I was talking to the audience even more on TV than radio."
Since graduating, McGowan has big plans for his future. He is currently On Air Talent for Q105 and WELJ in New London, CT, and fills in on weekends and mid-days.
"I plan to continue to work in radio and transform myself more into TV. I'm also planning on attending Rhode Island College for my Masters Degree."
John has many passions. In his free time, John can be found washing and cleaning cars, enjoying a bike ride, pointing or playing with his Bischon, Bernie. Follow John on twitter @JohnnyMac417
