2015 Forty Under 40

Sarah Addison 38

Co-host of the "Morning Mix" on Mix 94.5 FM and News Director at the Illini Radio Group.

Proudest professional accomplishment:

The money Mix 94.5 has raised through our annual "Christmas Wish" campaign.

I attribute my success to:

Having a positive attitude and my eternal optimism.

Best advice:

Be honest, to yourself and others. Know who you are as an individual. It's okay to be different. Different is good. The world needs different.

Interesting fact:

That once upon a time I played clarinet and could read music like a boss.

That I recently lost 50 lbs. That I sang on stage with Matchbox 20.

That "Dirty Dancing" was about me. One of these may not be true... but only one.

Biggest career challenge:

Balancing my home life and work life.

Important professional lesson:

Be adaptable. Things are always changing.

My partner/best friend/mom would describe me as:

A kid at heart.

From the nominator:

Sarah is a giver. She volunteered with One-to-One Mentoring, the Board of Safe Kids Champaign County, Go red for Women's luncheon/American Heart Association, The United Way, Carle's NICU CU and Roofsit to raise $75,000 for needy families. - Chris Shepard, Sales Manager, J.R.
