Samantha Stark is an original and current troupe member of It's All Been Done Radio Hour. She was a 2016 Audio Verse Award Finalist for her work on the show. She has also written a bit for the show.
Samantha was on active duty in the US Navy for seven years, where she was a television newscaster, then an anchor, before moving into radio, where her true love started. She learned how to script, edit, cast, and voice, and enjoyed being entertaining over stiff news. After making the decision to leave the Navy, she lived in Washington State, then moved to Montana for a job in a radio station, where she met some great people from Oregon, who got her into podcasting. She also does on-screen acting and voice over. She is a certified canine obedience trainer. Her Twitter handle is @Samanthastark3 and she podcasts at www.notanotherpodcast.com
Sam is also the Director of Marketing and Special Media for parent network It's All Been Done Presents, where she produces and hosts Quarterly Book Club and writes Stark Story Snacks. She has twice been selected as a winner for It's All Been Written, having submitted under a false name so as not to influence the judges, and she won the competition in 2019. She appeared as an actress in the audio adaptation of the 2018 It's All Been Written winner, The Blindest Date, and the 2019 winner, Sun and Moon, the latter of which she co-directed.
