Say What?!?

I’ve always been someone who can be extremely open and quite public about my life (as I have been over the years when I did radio and my stint in the 90’s doing tv in Indy on weekends along with the radio through the week) and sometimes I can be very private. It all depends on my mood. With social media, I always share stuff, but things about my private life are only on occasion.

Here’s something to help you get to know me better.

Name
David Eppley. When I did media work until fall 2012, I used the name Zack Skyler. So, a couple of names, same me. It’s a name I made up, due to the fact that a host at one of my first stations had my first and last name….and was a relative. I never knew him until then. Weird, but cool. I was a fan of Sky Walker, a NYC and Los Angeles radio personality and I liked Star Wars, plus, at the time…late 80’s…not many Zack’s around.

Born and raised
Muncie, Indiana. Grew up in Huntington, Indiana. Spent a lot of time in Marion and Wabash growing up.

Learning the ways
I was a fan of radio and television from the time I was a kid. I had a radio studio in my bedroom and had a tv studio too with cameras and backdrops and lightning. When I say studios, as a kid then, they were studios. My high school had a radio and tv program and I’d go there when I was in elementary school. I took summer classes. I got my first paid radio job at 14, while in middle school. I worked four different stations…some at the same time, before I got out of high school. That was the early radio and tv bug. I still have it somewhat, but I like just being a fan. I took marketing classes, which has helped me over the years with music and movie marketing, which I have done off & on, while doing various jobs. I multitask a lot. Before I moved to Orlando, I managed a couple of bands. Between Orlando and Minneapolis, I did more managing. The Radio and TV thing was happening all through this period. I helped with the marketing through various labels, studios and firms. I booked a lot of celebs years ago and developed friendships with people at every level of showbiz. I hustle and I care…a lot. Along with media work, over the years I’ve done retail, factories, bought and sold homes and cars…buy, fix ’em up, sell…financial services, art and a few other things. Most of it while doing media work at the same time. Any job…any time…I do whatever I can.
