James VanOsdol

VP, Audio Lab Rivet Radio, Inc

Effortless and expert communicator: in person, in print, online, or on-air.

I’ve worked in every level of radio broadcasting, including on-air personality, manager, producer and webmaster. I’ve been proud to work at a list of Chicago’s biggest stations, including WKQX, WLUP, WGN, WXRT, WZZN and WTMX.

I currently work as Vice President, Audio Lab for Rivet (rivetnewsradio.com), do fill-in work at WLUP and host a Chicago music show on WKQX (DEMO 312).

Podcasting is a passion of mine. I started my first podcast back in 2006, just as the medium was taking off. My current interview podcast, “Car Con Carne,” finds me podcasting out of my car, visiting different restaurants each week with a new guest sitting shotgun.

My digital background runs from content creation and management to consulting and training. As a digital marketer, I’ve managed social media campaigns, email marketing and content production.

As a trainer and consultant, I developed curricula for international media clients on topics including software use, content strategy and database engagement.

I’m a published writer (two books and a handful of print articles) who’s always working and thinking digitally.

I’m also a delight to work with.
