About Me: I am at Seton Hall to study sound production and music performance. This comes from many years of playing music myself in various small town, went nowhere rock bands. However, the number one thing that was certain when I applied to the Hall was that I wanted to join WSOU. Starting in Freshman year of high school, I started to switch from classic rock to punk and metal.  Since then, I’ve gone to shows anywhere from down the street at a local church, to two and a half hours away in Reading, PA, and have seen the greats like Metallica, Slayer, Green Day and more. The radio station has only helped increase my interest and experiences with music and the artists of our genres.

About Me: I love a lot of different music. Currently I've been listening to a lot of Indie and Alternative, but I've also recently fallen in love with Nine Inch Nails and bands like Ministry and the Dillinger Escape Plan. I study English, Writing, and Politcal Science, so the station allows me to really get into broadcasting and journalism in a way I don't get the chance to in class. I often say my other music interests lie in "old man music," which makes it perfectly fitting that I host "For The Record," our 70's specialty show, that you can listen to every Monday night from 10PM-12AM!

About Me:  When I visited Seton Hall for the first time, the thought of joining a heavy metal radio station never crossed my mind. However, when I went to WSOU for the first time, I knew that it was the place for me and was the deciding factor for me coming to Seton Hall. I am a Communication major and the Assistant Station Manager at WSOU. I first joined the staff of WSOU during the spring of 2017 and have never looked back since. I am currently the host of two specialty shows: Street Patrol (Wednesdays 8-10) which is our local metal show where we play unsigned and local bands and Campus Buzz (Sundays 8-10) which is our indie and alternative show. I also DJ and occasionally newscast. I am so glad that I joined the station because it has given me so many opportunities and friendships that I am never going to forget.
