Former HUBBARD BROADCASTING Rock KDKB/PHOENIX morning man KEVIN CONKLIN, who left the station in SEPTEMBER 2014 after it flipped to Alternative, recently returned to ARIZONA STATE to complete his physics degree.
While there, he entered a contest, THE GREAT SESE PITCHING COMPETITION, sponsored by the university's SCHOOL OF EARTH SCIENCES AND EXPLORATION (SESE) to encourage students "to think like entrepreneurs."
CONKLIN earned first prize and $1,000 to fund his venture, a weekly podcast called ASU CONNECTIONS that aims to educate, entertain and attract people to scientific research and scientists at ASU. He proceeded to build a studio on campus, and will be posting his conversations with professors and researchers when it launches later this fall at asuconnections.asu.edu.
The show will be updated weekly with timely content that can be found on SOUNDCLOUD, iTUNES, STETCHER or as a direct mp3 download.
