My chosen obsession, er, uh career, is that of a radio broadcaster. I've lived in New Hampshire...South Carolina..Florida...Mississippi and North Dakota. Out of the lot, I enjoyed ND alot.

I realize ND and NE are different, but in general I seem to be more attracted to area that has character in the land and people around it!

Anyways, my equestion is.. what area would be good for me to look at? I'm NOT a fan of big towns, but I don't like living in the middle of nowhere, and feel lucky to have a phone line. Somewhere in between rural and big city..

When I lived in North Dakota, I lived pretty close to work.. and the bank, grocery store and post office were close by. I worked at a station that everyone listened to and always knew who/where we were. I often went on bikerides thru town after work as exercise and in general it was a nice, quiet, calm type of town.. low crime too. Williston wasn't just a town where people happened to live, but it was a community.. where people did things together, went to a bunch of town events, etc..

Weather doesn't bother me, hot or cold.. I'm a grown boy, I can handle it.

Any ideas or suggestions on places for me to look? I guess I could equate what I'm looking for to something like Williston, ND.....

(Did I make any sense here and make it clear what I'm looking for? It's kinda hard to exactly put a finger on/describe what I like)

I take it you want to stay in broadcasting? Not a lot of little radio stations out state Nebraska but a few. O'Neil has a couple smaller stations in the area. Nice area of the state, good folks there.

Aurora is a great community, it sounds like you are describing it in your post. It's 13 miles from Grand Island where you would be able to get a job in radio.

Hastings or Kearney might fit your criteria. I'm partial to Hastings: it's my home town. . Kearney is slightly larger now, and has a branch of the University of Nebraska. Hastings has a very highly rated Liberal Arts college, in case you're interested in knowing about the ed. aspects. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestions so far everyone.

I may be a New England boy at heart, but my preference for work seems to be out in the further west... North Dakota was nice, I kinda miss it lol.

If anyone has any other ideas, let me know

You can PM me any time.

Well the only real big cities that you might find a big city feel is Omaha and Lincoln. Lincoln can be either it is up to you as an individual what you think. All the other cities in Nebraska other than Grand Island who have radio stations are at 25,000 or smaller in population. So take your pick of where you want to live and come to Nebraska and live it.
