Oprah's Yard Sale

oprah__oPtOprah Winfrey recently raised $600,000 for charity through a “yard sale” of her personal possessions held Saturday in California. But before you picture the TV superstar sitting at a card table in her sweats, arguing over whether a coffee mug is worth a quarter of fifty cents, know this… it’s not the kind of ‘yard sale’ you and I would have.  See, she auctioned off a collection of art, antiques, furniture and memorabilia, with proceeds earmarked for her girls leadership academy in South Africa.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
