Before joining The Bob Rivers Show in 2002, Executive Director Arik Korman worked with such legendary Seattle broadcasters as Jim French, Dave Ross, Bill Yeend, Pat Cashman, Wayne Cody and Robert Hardwick.
Arik was born in Redondo Beach, California and attended the University of California, San Diego, where he bailed on the concept of becoming a doctor. When he got a "C" in chemistry for the first time in his academic life, Arik threw caution to the wind and headed north to Seattle.
In 1992, he married his wife Monique, whom he randomly met contra dancing. Three years later, Arik's eyes were opened wide when he and Monique spent nearly 8 months backpacking through Asia and visited Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. Arik and Monique's son AJ turned 4 years old in April.
Arik's interests include travel, playing the electric bass guitar, wine tasting, hiking, aviation, downhill and cross-country skiing, tennis, golf, gardening, philosophy, science, speaking foreign languages, swimming, snorkeling and running marathons.
Arik received the 2001 Visionary Award from Sabo Media, a high-profile New York media consulting firm. His work with World Vision to encourage Bob Rivers Show listeners to sponsor more than 4300 children in India, Ethiopia, the Amazon Rainforest, Bangladesh, Senegal and the Dominican Republic and build a school in Ethiopia for another 2000 children has been the highlight of his radio career, resulting in a 2007 Puget Sound Radio Broadcasters Association Soundie Award and plenty of good karma for everyone involved.
