I graduated with a graphic arts degree from Kirkwood in 2003 and a degree in psychology from the University of Iowa in 2007. While at the University of Iowa I began hosting a weekly politics/news opinion show called, "This Week's Version of the Truth," on the University's radio station, KRUI. This February, after a suggestion from a radio listener, I began hosting a TV version of my show and volunteering on various TV shows at Iowa City PATV. The challenge, enjoyment, and sense of responsibility in providing the public with news and information they may not acquire otherwise, has lead me to pursue further learning opportunities in the social media format.

Just this year, in Jan. of 2008 Acie Earl started his own show catering to sports and real estate topics. Under the Iowa City Pay TV program, Acie brings in different guests weekly for 1 hour to discuss their personal and business lives. Acie feels that there is not enough emphasis on positive sports and life, so Acie invitites many of the players he’s trained and coached, parents, coaches, principals, athletic directors, bankers, real estate agents, doctors, and any one positive in the community with a story to tell on his show. For the 1st 20 minutes Acie has a sports commentary voicing his opinion about the high school, college, and pro stories of the week. Then the next 10 minutes Acie gives the listeners a little tid bit session on things going on in the real estate world for home ownership selling and buying. Then the last 30 minutes the show is dedicated to the special guests. Call ins' are welcome and the show has a special line to call to dial directly to Acie and his guests. The show also has the hawkeye hot seat where Acie fires a quick Q and A rapid fire answer session under a 1 minute time clicker. All in all Acie doesn't know where the show will take him, but for now, its fun people like it and he gets extreme satisfaction from the local viewers when people say hey Acie I saw your show last week!
