See Video of the First Central Texas Radio DJ to Do Live Broadcast From Helicopter Above Killeen
It's not exactly like I'm the first DJ to broadcast from a helicopter. They're called traffic reporters, and they do it every day. This is Central Texas, however, and there aren't a lot of DJs in helicopters calling in traffic reports.
That changed Saturday, July 18th 2015 as I took a promotion at Freedom Jeep Chrysler in Killeen with Freedom Air out of Copperas Cove as an opportunity for another first. It was only a few months prior that I became the first radio DJ to fire a gun live on the radio at Weber's Gun Range in Troy.
July 18th was a scorching Central Texas day as I took to the sky. I can't really tell you WHY I wanted to be the first DJ to broadcast from a helicopter from above Killeen. It's the little things in life. This wasn't my first helicopter flight. I'd taken a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon back in 2001. I'd also taken a helicopter ride above Waco in 2000 DURING a live broadcast but not while actually on the air.
