Brent began his radio career at the age of 13, when a band teacher from
Daytona Beach, Frank Northrup,
took an interest in him and taught him how to run the board at WSBB-AM
1230 in 1966. As Brent tells it; "...One night when the GM was out of town, Frank went to the bowling alley next door to eat and told me to do the talking.
A night I'll never forget. Two years later in 1968 I got my Third Class ticket and got a paying job with Doug Montgomery at
WOGO-AM 1550, the other station in New
..." Then there were stops at WMFJ-AM 1450
in 1968, with a return trip in 1969. Brent also was on the air in Deland at
WJBS-AM 1490 in 1969. 1971 saw stops at WOGO once again as well as
WDAT-AM 1380, where he also served as music director.
Again form Brent; "...Since then I've had the pleasure of working from one coast to the other, and a few places in between.
I started out on air, then in 1979 made the move to management, as a Program Director...". Today Brent is Director of Operations and PD at WLAV, for Citadel Broadcasting in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
