“I never wanted to always wonder: ‘what if?’ - Danielle McCartan

How does a three sport high school athlete turned high school teacher and coach end up hosting a weekly show on our nation's original all-sports radio station? Well, I can tell you that I didn't go to school for this!

Here is the story of my journey... from the classroom at a small college in northern New Jersey to the studio at WFAN radio in Manhattan... and all of the stops in between. I'll talk about the importance of: networking, "knowing your stuff", and investing in yourself. 

You'll learn of the people who have served as signs on my highway: pointing me in the direction of a destination unknown.
Some acting as yellow cautionary signs
Some acting as red stop signs (I name four athletes that have ever tuned me down for an interview!)
Some acting as green lights, pushing me to keep my foot on the gas.

Some names you'll recognize, while others have been purposefully kept anonymous. Like Suzyn Waldman’s… my journey is far from over, and I’m excited to see where this road will take me!
