HOST

I am the host of From The Bleachers, WQAQ's "Show of the Year" Award winner.

Since September of 2016, I have been the host of From The Bleachers, a weekly sports show on WQAQ 98.1-FM. The show features myself, as well as three co-hosts and a Social Media Manager.

 

Over the show's run, I've interviewed such notable people as NESN's Tom Caron, Boston PD Commissioner William Evans, Olympic hockey player John McCarthy, Phillies play-by-play announcer Tom McCarthy, and more.

As part of hosting the show, I run the in-studio board and telephone, as well as the music program, Zetta, on the studio computer. I am responsible for screening and airing phone calls, cueing breaks, and playing music in and out of said breaks in addition to my on-air duties. I am also responsible for editing the recorded audio from each episode, and posting the episode to our iTunes Podcast page.

In August of 2018, we re-branded our Twitter account, and launced a brand new blog/show website, with over 15 bloggers and 5 new sports podcasts joining our brand. FTB has grown from a simple radio show, to one of the most recognizable brands at Quinnipiac University.

MANAGER

I serve as the General Manager at WQAQ 98.1 FM, and have served as the Production Manager and Program Director.

During the 2017-18 school year, I was elected to serve as the Production Manager for WQAQ 98.1 FM, Quinnipiac's student-run radio station.

 

As the head of that department, I was responsible for all audio that aired on our station, aside from music and talk shows. I taught my department the intricacies of Adobe Audition, and the department began the year by creating countless show introductions for our new shows. We also created sweepers to help begin and end commercial breaks, and I created underwritings for our sponsors.

For the 2018-19 school year, I was elected as WQAQ's Program Director. Under the new title, I am responsible for designing the show application form, and programming WQAQ's program schedule each semester. I also oversee the station as a whole, and make sure that each show is following the rules of both the station and the FCC. 

For the 2019-20 school year, I was named the General Manager of the radio station. I oversee over 60 weekly shows and over 100 members in our organization. I also oversee the scheduling of the radio station through the program GSelector, and the presentation of the station through Zetta. 

 

ANCHOR

I served as the studio producer and in-game score update anchor for AM 1220 WQUN.

In 2018, I joined AM 1220 WQUN, the commercial radio station in Hamden, CT, as a result of my work with WQAQ.

I am a studio producer and in-game sports update anchor for the station for its broadcasts of Quinnipiac athletic events. As part of these duties, I am responsible for the production of the event, from the beginning of the pregame show 20 minutes prior, to the end of the postgame show.

I oversee the production of the game using the in-studio console, as well as the scheduling software, Zetta. Through Zetta, I cue commercial breaks and intro/outro music. I am responsible for cueing the talent when the break is ending, and coordinating with said talent about the highlights that they want for the postgame show. I cut said highlights on Adobe Premiere during the game, and air them during the postgame show.

I am also responsible for providing 2-3 minute sports updates during the intermissions/halftimes, as well as the postgame shows. While the game is happening, I am simultaneously updating my script with scores from local (Connecticut) games, league (MAAC/ECAC) games, and major national sports headlines. I deliver the updates, and send the broadcast back to commercial.

 

PRODUCER

I served as the Radio Engineer for the Hartford Yard Goats on News Radio 1410 WPOP during the summer of 2017.

During the summer of 2017, I interned for the Hartford Yard Goats, the AA affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, during their first season at the new Dunkin Donuts Park.

For this internship, I was the on-site Radio Engineer/Producer for each home broadcast. I was in charge of sending the broadcast to commercial and bringing them back on the air, as well as recording the broadcast, and cutting highlights for the post-game show and the next day's pregame show.

During this summer, I innovated the intern position, researching facts and statistics to help the on-air talent. I also created the "Radio Retweet" graphic, which allowed me to match an audio highlight with a visual for the Yard Goats Twitter account.

As a result of my work, I was hired the following summer as the Media Assistant. In this role, I coordinated interviews between players and local media. I was also responsible for a postgame interview with Yard Goats manager, Warren Schaeffer, after each game.
