November Newsletter Interview Intern Spotlight: Scott Carney


Tell us a bit about yourself:

I was born and raised in Fort Collins, CO and I later moved to Boulder to begin my studies at the University of Colorado. I graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in History in May 2012, and now I'm excited to be a new Sales/PR & Marketing Intern here at the OMF! I love all things music, collecting records, checking out live shows, watching movies, reading new books, doing crossword puzzles, and trivia. I'm currently addicted to pinball.

How did you get involved in media?

When I moved to Boulder for school, one of the first things that really caught my attention was the campus radio station, Radio 1190. I remember checking it out on a whim as a freshman and as soon as I walked in, I was stunned at the sheer amount of music available. Thousands upon thousands of CDs and LPs lined the walls, most of which I had never heard before. I started volunteering as often as I could, and I really fell in love with the independent spirit and music it promoted. Eventually, I started DJing regularly and became the Promotions Director up until my senior year.
