Cooper comes to Sacramento from the frozen tundra of Minnesota. He doesn’t talk like they do in the movie Fargo, but it is one of his favorite movies.
Since he was a kid, Cooper was drawn to music and to the radio. He was a drummer in school music classes and eventually got his first A…in Media class. “We had a low-power radio station at school, and I really dedicated myself. I would pick up air-shifts from other students and sometimes I would alter the schedule the teacher made so I could be on–air more.” Being a drummer in the school Jazz Band gave him an appreciation of the music he loved playing on the radio, and more A’s on the report card. “I knew I had to do something in the music industry; it was the only thing I seemed to be good at!”
It worked out well for Cooper. He attended college, got a radio job, and worked his way up. He spent 14 years at his last radio job, and only left because his girlfriend accepted a job offer here in Sacramento. “We talked about it and decided we hated Minnesota winters and that California Sun was what we wanted. So we did it!” It worked out, as Cooper found himself in the right place at the right time. “I fell in love with this station the first time I heard it online back in Minnesota. I was a Radio 94.7 listener before I even got here. I would crank the station while packing, and hoped I would be able to work here someday!”
Cooper has 2 dogs, Punk & Snickers. He loves to golf, ride his motorcycle, and eats plenty of Sushi. He resides in the Natomas area with his girlfriend, Jill.
“I am SO THRILLED to be a part of this radio station. I hope Sacramento embraces me as much as I have embraced it. This is my last stop on the journey. I LOVE IT HERE and can’t wait to grow along with Radio 94.7.”
