George Collins has been a radio broadcaster for over five years and has produced shows relating to music, politics, science, and martial arts. A native of Washington State, George has bounced back and forth between both sides of the Cascade Mountains and remained engaged in the different political climates of each side of the state. He became politically charged while attending college at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington where he received his degree in public health and science journalism.
George got his start in radio at KAOS 89.3 FM in Olympia. He joined the KAOS team as a music programmer in the hopes of widely sharing music he discovered through hours of combing through the music library and internet sources. The music program took on a number of different formats before flourishing into the late-night variety show The Early Morning Enigma, a program George still runs to this day.
He returned to Eastern Washington after graduation and soon found a home with progressive community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow in neighboring Idaho. Here, George continued playing music and expanded into political talk radio with fellow host Oscar Quentin. George is now President of the Board of Directors for the station and works hard with his fellow board members to keep progressive radio alive in red state America.
George is also an avid martial artist who regularly competes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and kickboxing matches. He has also studied Muay Thai, Taekwondo, and catch wrestling. He hopes to transition to MMA somewhere down the line.
