This character is having a laugh and acting a bit comical. Byron Johnson is both a faculty member and professional staff at the University of Central Missouri. Byron teaches Broadcast Copywriting at UCM and works as key professional staff at UCM’s 90.9 The Bridge radio station. Byron said he first began working in the broadcasting field back in 1967. “It was with KOKO” in Warrensburg, MO “as an on-air announcer”, said Johnson. “The station was where Warrensburg Ford is now and across from that was an empty field.” Byron has also worked at the University for 14 years! Seen here, shooing away any flies that might come near, Byron said he sometimes enjoys an adult beverage after a particularly stressful day.
