Ollenbittle said recording the podcast has become the highlight of his workday each day. Prior to his work with the RiverBender.com Podcast, Ollenbittle was a personality on Y98 FM in St. Louis, a public address announcer for SIUE baseball and a nationwide voice-over artist.

“I felt a little more nervous when I started, but now I look forward to it,” Ollenbittle said. “Now, I love to find out what is going on around town, and follow up stories. I am more informed than I have ever been in the place I have lived in 25 years.”

Ollenbittle said the podcast is just another way Riverbender.com is trying to deliver the news to attract both the older and younger viewer alike.

“When I think back to when I was a kid, my parents got a newspaper and found out a little of what was in the news on TV,” he added. “Everything now is so immediate in news. I am in only my 30s and I know anyone my age or younger receives their news in their pocket with their phone. I love how Riverbender.com presents news and sports about everything going on around the Alton-Godfrey areas and the region.”
