After a university experience that didn’t go well and an enjoyable-but-taxing stint as a childcare provider, Naomi Penner knew she wanted something different.
A radio ad for Herzing College caught her attention. Why not pursue a diploma in broadcasting, which she’d been interested in since she was a kid?
This was late 2020, when pandemic restrictions still made traditional classes difficult. Fortunately, Herzing’s program was available online and gave Naomi the flexibility she needed.
She is now the morning show host for Now Country 104.7 and handles social media for three different radio stations in Winnipeg.
We spoke with Naomi recently to learn more about her experience at Herzing and how her career has unfolded since graduation.
