Sara Caudle has spent the past three years working as the Erath County elections clerk, but now she is making her long-time dream come true by becoming a full-time radio personality.
Not long ago, Caudle was busy programming ballots and filing candidate information and now she's going live every morning at 7 a.m.
"I'll miss being elections clerk," she said. "It's been my baby since I took over from Bart Greenway a few years ago. It's hard to let go, but I'm sure whoever they bring in will do a great job."
While she was elections clerk, Caudle improved the way elections were conducted in Erath County.
"We were one of the first three counties in the state to go electronic," she said. "By doing this, it allowed us to use the pilot program, which let people in the county vote at any of the locations regardless of where they lived. It made the entire process much easier for those wanting to vote."
But her heart has always been in radio.
"The station was a Godsend kind of thing," she said. "The station was on my mind one day and I texted the individual in charge and by the end of the day we had a legal marketing agreement and got the ball rolling in November 2012. By February 2013 my husband and I found out the station was ours."
Since then, Caudle and her husband Jody Lee have established 98.5 and 107.9 KWBY in Stephenville.
"I've always been in love with small market radio," she said. "It's awesome that we know our listeners and we're building real relationships with the people here. Once you're in radio, you never really leave it. It's an itch that you can't stop scratching and I don't see myself walking away."
