Year: Sophomore (Criminology major)

Title: Music Director

Position Description: The MD of the station is in charge of all music operations within WGMU Radio. This individual is responsible for any/all music that is inserted to our broadcasting system for DJs to choose when on-air. The MD works with promoters and entities like CMJ (College Music Journal) to track the amount of “plays” each track gets in a given week (measuring popularity of the songs inserted into the system). The MD is also the assistant to the Program Director of the station, and fills that position when the PD is unable to. The MD has the final say in approving any/all music for airplay on WGMU Radio.

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.h.

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