Broadcast Journalist

Rick Glasby is a Broadcast Journalist at WFIT.  He reports on developments at the Kennedy Space Center, as well as volunteering during WFIT pledge drives.

Rick’s love of radio began at the campus radio station of a small engineering college in upstate New York.  Drafted for the Viet Nam war, he was fortunate to be sent in the opposite direction to host afternoon drive at “The Rock of East Africa” (an American Forces radio station in Asmara, Ethiopia).  He spent the following 10 years working in commercial radio in suburban New York, Fort Pierce, and Daytona Beach.

Rick transitioned to multimedia production (hey, the money was better than radio), and worked for companies in the Washington, DC area, creating interactive marketing and training programs for private sector and government clients.  Upon his return to Florida, he was thrilled to find listener-supported public radio WFIT (89.5 FM).  He had come home.

SpaceX’s powerful new Falcon Heavy rocket will launch from the Kennedy Space Center this November.  That’s what Elon Musk tweeted last night.  If things work out, the Falcon Heavy could launch during the same month and from the same launch pad that saw the Saturn V rumble to orbit for the first time 50 years ago.  The plan is for all three rocket cores return for individual landings – the two side boosters at the Cape, and the center core on the drone ship out in the Atlantic.  Musk has admitted there’s a lot of risk associated with the first launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket, saying it mig

NASA

The White House asked NASA if they could add astronauts to the upcoming around-the-moon-and-back mission.  WFIT's Rick Glasby shares the results of the feasibility study:
