John Sipos


A mostly radio (a bit of television) broadcast journalist on Tampa Bay in Florida. A whole bunch of years, an in studio news anchor, writer, editor — the past 22 years working almost exclusively in environments where people work and play. It can be an interview with a governor at 10am to covering officials investigating a murder at 10pm. Literally thousands of voices, including pilots and scientists flying through the eye of Hurricane Ike as it was passing over the island of Cuba. Yes, the flight was with permission of the Cuban government, their fighter pilots not interested in flying in that weather. Along the way I've been gathering natural sounds to sweeten my stories. My apology for not sharing them in the past. I will try to do better in the future.

As for this new Free Sound site, LOVE IT! Particularly, the ability to spot check the sound along the time line without needing to listen to the entire thing. If I can help spread the word, that would be my pleasure. In fact, perhaps a Skype call in the next few weeks that I could turn into a story reaching much of Florida USA.
