Where The Producer Gets the Mic
In The Time Of Our Lives It Is Time To Say Goodbye
Goodbye to the Allen Hunt Show

"If it has been five years, is it really still a startup," she says in response to me describing what I do while driving to the restaurant on a first date.

I told her I had essentially been thinking the same thing for about six months. The fact the Allen Hunt Show was a startup project was why I enjoyed it so much; but at the same time, the fact it was still a startup increasingly was a point of vexation. A year later, that relationship ended, and so now is my relationship with the Allen Hunt Show.

If you haven't heard yet, we have come to the decision to cease syndicating the Allen Hunt Show outside of the Atlanta market as of May 31. This has been an amazing experience and I am eternally grateful to God and others that have enabled me to do something so inspiring over the past six years.

I remember sitting in Allen's office at the end of May in 2005 when he wanted to know if I'd like to help start a radio show. I simply responded with, "I have never worked in radio, and if I suck at it, please let me know and I will gladly step out, but I would love to try." I do not regret that statement for one second. Man it's been fun.

I am not really ready to publicize what my next step will be. I am highly confident I know what it is, but contracts haven't been signed as we hash through some last details. But I will say that I am very excited about it.

Also what I am very excited about is taking the entire month of June off. I graduated from college in Los Angeles on a Saturday in May of 2005, and by that Thursday I had moved myself across the country, got moved into my apartment, and started my job. It will be nice to have a break.

June will be spent in Indiana with CJ & Andrea having their 3rd child, at the lake in Michigan doing some wakeboarding, and probably England.

You will still be able to read my rantings on my blog at my personal site andyborgmann.com (soon to be switched to andy.borgmann.me). I look forward to our continued friendship as I move on from the Allen Hunt Show.

When I left Mount Pisgah in 2007, I wrote about the song "Life for Rent." In that post I stated, "I will take a full life that doesn't belong to me - but belongs to my Creator - any day over a life I own but comes up empty." 3.5 years later, I agree with that more than ever.

As I leave this time, it isn't "Life for Rent" that I have playing in my head. It's "Time of Our Lives" by Tyronne Wells. I'll sign off with this:
It's hard to walk away from the best of days
But if it has to end, I'm glad you have been my friend
In the time of our lives

Andy's blog aims to be like a Scrubs episode, mixed with a Chuck Klosterman column, centered around the topic of faith. It is open, honest, raw, and a little embarrassing. It is a place to discuss religion, politics, ministry, pop culture, and well, just life - especially focused on the time of life we call our 20s!

Andy is the Executive Producer of The Allen Hunt Show; a progressive (in the literal sense), talk radio show based in Atlanta, GA aimed at bringing faith back into the public discussion. Andy enjoys travel, aviation, web design, politics, friends, and faith. He holds that the secret to a full life is loving God and loving people - which he fails at constantly.

Andy grew up in Fort Wayne, IN. He now lives in Alpharetta, GA.

More information about Andy can be found at www.2timothy42.org or Andy's Facebook.

P.S. As has been mentioned on air, Andy is horrible at grammar and spelling. Please excuse any mistakes, trust me, he's sorry.
