Title: Program Director

Position Description: The station PD directly oversees the three WGMU Studios: on-air, practice and production.

This individual is the handler of 45+ DJs and upwards of 80 hours of programming in a given week of the semester.

What I love about WGMU: I love how easy going and fun the environment is. There is a love for music that attracts everyone to WGMU, regardless of major, personality or age. It never feels like work at the station; it feels like you’re hanging with friends, vibing to new music, talking about concerts and upcoming events. WGMU is a family, not just a station.

Hobbies: Beating my dad at mini golf, traveling, writing, reading, arts and crafts, and watching movies.

Favorite Bands/Artists: Miike Snow, Arctic Monkeys, The Neighbourhood, Kygo, Phantogram, The Internet, Steve Aoki
