in Lassen County I have met hundreds of members of our
community and have had the privilege of watching the current
high school players come up through the ranks of local
started with the Sierra Radio Network in August of 2009
and have fallen madly in love with sports broadcasting.
I like to tell people this is my new hobby. My goal will
always be to get as many of our local kids names and athletic
accomplishments on the radio. Our kids go from young athletes
to grown ups so fast, I want to get their names and their
voices on the radio as much as possible, and that will
always be my main goal.
is why I started the Athlete of the Month award in 2009,
so I could recognize some of these kids from elementary
school through high school and give them the publicity
and the credit they deserve. I will always use every piece
of information that anyone sends me about any level of
our local athletes from Lassen, Plumas and Sierra counties!

Director - Madison Cole
Host for Swap Shop program.
began working as the News Director for the Sierra Radio Net
in January of 2017. It is the most challenging and fun job
to ever exist- and I am enjoying every minute of it! You can
often find me running around Lassen or Plumas County with
a pen in my hand and smile on my face. I am a life-long resident
of Lassen County, and I plan to never leave the area. I love
everything our community has to offer; from the wonderful
people to the breathtaking landscape! Even when I am not at
work, I stay constantly busy. I can often be found fixing
cars, shooting guns, riding my motorcycle, or adventuring
in Lassen or Plumas County. I also love to sing and play my
piano every chance I get! But most of all, I enjoy spending
time with my family and friends. If you ever want to contact
me, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or like my official Facebook page, Madison in the Morning.
