9/11 Sparks New Career for Alum Erica Friedman
She served as general manager of the college radio station for two years, working alongside younger students "any one of whom I was old enough to be the mother of," she said with a smile. "We found ways to relate. I like to think I was an example for them of what you can accomplish if you want to." She graduated from Mercer with honors in 2004.
an internship at Nassau Broadcasting, Friedman was offered a full-time
job as an account executive, a position she contines to enjoy. The company
is a great place to work, she says. She would love to buy a radio station,
which is tough unless you want to live in Montana, she acknowledges, but
she does intend to own another business. "I just don't know what
it will be yet."
