Get to Know WEGL 91.1 FM's Sports Director!

Year: 2nd year graduate student 

Major: Communications

Position: WEGL Sports Director 

How did you find out about WEGL?

I found out about WEGL through Eagle Eye TV. Being in the same suite, I eventually made the transition over to radio and it’s been a blast.

What made you want to apply for your position?

After certain circumstances left WEGL looking for a sports director, I couldn’t just leave the department high and dry when they needed it most two years ago. So I hopped in to pay back what WEGL lent to me for years. After that, I wanted to do my best to make sure that everyone who wanted to work in sports was set up for the future, win some awards and check off some goals that were unfinished business.

Favorite WEGL Memory:

There’s a lot to choose from. We could talk about our Olive Garden dinners, crazy VR gaming sessions, our secret dance offs, singing and more. That’s just a glimpse into the ever evolving saga that WEGL has put together for me. But I’m going to cheat and say doing The Xtra Point radio and tv show. It’s been a blast getting to know everyone and creating memories. He have yelled, bickered, thrown things, survived a fire alarm and even fought enough to settle it in our own all star game. Now my team may have lost, but it’s a best of seven series so we will see who has the last laugh.

Favorite Song Lyric: 

“Everyone thinks that I have it all

But it's so empty living behind these castle walls. These castle walls

If I should tumble, if I should fall

Would anyone hear me screaming behind these castle walls?There's no-one here at all, behind these castle walls”

Castle Walls - T.I ft Christina Aguilera 

If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

That’s a hard one I can’t answer. I don’t think I could pin myself to one album only. So I’ll just take the copout and go with the biggest supporter that has gotten WEGL through the roughest of times. Any Pitbull album. You can never go wrong with Mr. Worldwide.
