Bill Freeman has been entertaining central North Carolina for decades. Since being bitten by the theatre bug at age 12, Freeman has continued performing via numerous mediums throughout his life. After performing in local dramas and musicals, Freeman discovered that he also enjoyed working behind the scenes as a technician. After high school, he began working with regional bands as an audio and lighting technician, traveling throughout the southeast performing in clubs and small concert venues.
Bill next transitioned to radio as an on-air DJ/VJ at a country station. He then shifted to top 40 and later to rock radio, working in the Raleigh market. It was while working in radio that a call came from a listener needing a DJ/VJ for a private party. That’s all it took for Freeman to decide to combine his performance and technical skills to start a part-time mobile DJ/VJ company.
In addition to a weekend radio show in Raleigh, Freeman began helping former band members record an album that later received international air-play. Shortly thereafter, life took a u-turn placing Freeman back into theatre as technical director and scenic designer for a regional professional theatre company. While managing and building shows at the theatre, Bill decided to finish a BFA in technical theatre and design at UNC Greensboro.
Freeman graduated Magna Cum Laude, and was hired by Central Carolina Community College in 1998 as Lead Instructor of the Broadcast Production Technology department. He currently serves as Department Chair of Media Technologies and teaches radio and audio production classes. Additionally, Freeman manages the 3,000 watt college station, WDCC 90.5 FM affording him the luxury of receiving more different types of music than he can ever listen to.
"I love working as a DJ/VJ," Freeman said, "along with the radio station, it keeps me active in the music business and affords me the opportunity to help people have fun!"
