A-State Alum Joshua Godsey Goes to NYC for COVID-19 Response

Arkansas Department of Health

This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I'm Johnathan Reaves. Today, we finish the second part of an interview series of Arkansas State University alumni who went to New York City to help with COVID-19 response.  Last week, I talked with Mandy Thomas.  Mandy went to New York City with Joshua Godsey.  He is working near Memphis as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. He tells about his experience of working in an area that was a hot spot for COVID-19.  I started the interview by asking Godsey to tell a little about himself and how he came to Arkansas State.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.   

Johnathan Reaves is the News Director for KASU Public Radio. As part of an Air Force Family, he moved to Arkansas from Minot, North Dakota in 1986. He was first bitten by the radio bug after he graduated from Gosnell High School in 1992. While working on his undergraduate degree, he worked at KOSE, a small 1,000 watt AM commercial station in Osceola, Arkansas. Upon graduation from Arkansas State University in 1996 with a degree in Radio-Television Broadcast News, he decided that he wanted to stay in radio news. He moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas and worked for East Arkansas Broadcasters as news director and was there for 16 years.
