Emily Smith
As a kid, Emily Smith could often be found in her bedroom recording radio shows. She obsessively recorded songs off the radio onto cassettes and mixed them together on a dual player. She was in love with everything radio and music had to offer.

When it came time for college she wasn't sure where to head, but ended up at the The University of Florida (Go Gators!). This led to a job on the local rock radio station in Gainesville, FL. Then, in January 2006, while in her final semester of school, she found BTR. It wasn't nearly what it is today -- just a few DJs begging unknown artists for music and interviews, but it was her dream job.

Emily has now been recording radio shows and podcasts in her bedroom for the bulk of her life and with BTR for more than a decade.
