I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Besa Gordon to learn five random facts about herself and what inspired her to become a radio personality. Check out my interview with Besa below:
Loryn: What inspired you to host a bi-weekly pop-culture show the Rewind with Besa?
Besa: It wasn't totally my idea LOL. The owner of Converge Media, Omari Salisbury hit me one day and said it would be dope if I did a video show rather than just on-air and podcasting. So, we created Rewind with Besa where I interview artists, talk about local news and pop culture. I actually need to drop a new interview with week LOL.
Loryn: What has been your favorite song to play on the radio lately?
Besa: I really love playing Blxst latest single "Chosen," and Beyonce when my PD allows it.
Loryn: What inspired you to be a radio personality?
Besa: I'd done podcasting over the years and people would say I have a voice for radio, so I figured I would give it a try. I guess they were right LOL. However, I will say I would be lying if I said I never thought about it growing up in Seattle, but I honestly never thought it would be something in my reach.
Loryn: How has the pandemic changed you?
Besa: It honestly hasn't, if anything I've become used to wearing a mask at the grocery store. OH, and working from home is dope. But otherwise, not much has changed for me. I'm a bit of an introvert plus an only child so being home solo is pretty normal for me.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Besa: My Government name isn't Besa, nor does it start with the letter B LOL.
