Heartfelt Gratitude

Wednesday, June 16, 2010
It has been roughly a year and a half since "Jayvee" became a familiar name in local airwaves. Surprisingly, I was flattered when quite a number of hivers gave me the warmest welcome as a radio personality. From that point onwards, I knew my worth and purpose as a citizen of this country. I was glad to have served those who craved for the same passion that I have - music.

You may be wondering by now what's the reason behind the odd tone depicted in my words. This can be explained by my indefinite leave from Local Brew and the station as a whole starting June 20. It has been a hard decision for me to leave something I've been attached to for quite some time but I knew that it was for my personal good and that of the listeners' as well. It's no secret that I'm currently into a new career with a newcomer company in the city. Due to certain circumstances, I got a higher post, allowing me to experience conflict between my two interests. I know for a fact that one can't have it all at once; reason enough to give up one of my careers. My experience in radio was a wonderful one but I had to decide after weeks of thinking it over. The site's location including my preparation for each session and certain issues I prefer not to disclose, made the whole process of deciding considerably easier.

This is it. My expiration date in radio might have come but I am not closing my doors for a comeback in the near future in any of the numerous media outfits in the city or country as a totality. Because of this, allow me to grab the opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to those who believed in me and what I could offer. Same goes to those who have supported me all through out. I would also like to thank the people who served as my challenge in becoming better every time I go on air. To my Killerbee family, thanks for the camaraderie and thanks for being a part of my life in radio. To the summer jocks who have been under my leadership during summer of 2009, thanks for the opportunity to impart knowledge and learn from you guys at the same time. Without all of you, I wouldn't have reached this far.

My name is Jayvee and this has been one full chapter of my life in the world of radio. I will miss you guys. Take good care of yourselves. I wish you all the best. Adios Amigos!
