Will here again!
I wanted to tell you about all of the cool things I can do at the radio station!
One of my favorite parts of Saint Xavier is working and being a part of the student run radio station WXAV. WXAV allows me to play the music that I want to and allows me to learn skills that will help me out in the future. I am seeking a degree in mass communications, so everything that I learn at the radio station allows me to develop my skills.
Today, I was able to take part in a conference call at the radio station with two of the cast members of the hit NBC television show Parks and Recreations, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott. I am a big fan of both of them, so it was quite the experience to take part in the conference call. Unfortunately I was not able to ask a question, but that is part of the learning experience.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I am the deputy sports director which gives me the opportunity to do a lot of creative things with the station. One great part of my job at the radio station is being able to call the play-by-play for Saint Xavier’s men’s basketball team. I am pretty excited tonight to be able to call my first CCAC tournament game for the guys. I have always been a huge sports fan and always thought it would be incredible to be able to announce games and because of WXAV and Saint Xavier I have been able to have that dream come true.
