The Art and talent of Arroe Collins
Arroe Collins is all over the map, and his talent demands it. A 26 year veteran of radio, Arroe's work has made its way onto the Bob & Sheri Radio Show, helping them earn six Marconi nominations. He was 1/3 of the nationally syndicated Pam Stone Show, helping her earn two Gracie Allan Awards. Twice he was voted Jefferson Pilot employee of the year, and was nominated to replace Casey Kasum on American Top 40.
Arroe worked in Billings, Montana from 1980 to 1985 when he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he has worked since 1985. He has been on-air talent and voice-track artist, as well as having done commercial and radio imaging production, for stations across America, throughout his colorful life.
His art has helped raise thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Koman Foundation, the Hope Stout Make a Wish Foundation and several local schools who've needed extra funds to send their students to foreign countries.
