Well-known for decades of hard work, dedication and success, Cherie MacQueen devoted the majority of her career in broadcasting as a newscaster and sportscaster. Her journey began in 1973, when she joined the U.S. Army and learned broadcasting and personnel administration. Of her eight years in the Army, she spent two years as a personnel specialist in Honolulu, and another three as an administrative specialist in San Francisco. She also served as a radio broadcast journalist in Vincenza, Italy, where television broadcasting had not yet come.
After her Army enlistment ended, Ms. MacQueen went back to work as a civilian at the Armed Forces Radio and TV Service, which provides radio and television to servicemen and women and their families overseas. She worked in radio traffic, radio master control, broadcast support, broadcast management, internal information, and news/sports. Ms. MacQueen also held numerous positions for the Armed Forces Radio and TV Service as a radio traffic specialist, a radio production specialist, a broadcast support specialist, a broadcast support manager, an internal information manager, and a news and support specialist. Before retiring, Ms. MacQueen went on to produce radio news and information programs for later use by affiliate stations, and was responsible for all the production and hosting of on-air sports events. She is most proud of her work in radio broadcasting; she believes it’s important to bring the troops a touch of home.
