Amanda Roche

This episode was recorded on January 9, 2017, on WPRK FM. Listen to the whole conversation in the player above, or click on the links below to go to a specific segment of the show!

Amanda Roche is many things. A double grad from Rollins College. A painter and photographer. A team member at the Orlando Economic Development Commission. Somehow, she also finds the time to be a DJ at WPRK, and just like Highlander, there can be only one DJ at WPRK.

Wait, sorry, just researched it further, not true at all. It applies to immortals and VJs only. Whew.

What is true is Amanda heads up the EDC’s Obassador program, helping to shine a light on all the great stuff Orlando has going on through all the great social media people we have around here. And there are a lot.

In case you didn’t know, Orlando + ambassador equals Obassador. Mashing words together like this is known as a portmanteau. Learning!

Also making an appearance, Bad Business Ideas (patent pending) and cobbler.
