Since the fall of 2007 I have been a member of the campus radio station WMLU 91.3 fm and have served as its Sports Director since 2008. During that time the radio station has received two Virginia Association of Broadcasters awards for "Outstanding Sports Coverage" (2009, 2010) and has become one of the leading voices in covering Longwood Lancer's athletics on campus. I have also spent time using the skills I have learned in the classroom writing for The Rotunda about such events as the 2008 Presidential Election.

Thanks for the Memories

As I prepare for my final sports broadcast as a member of WMLU 91.3 fm tomorrow night, I am reminded of just how far the station and sports committee has come in the 4 years I have been at Longwood. The people that I have met and had the opportunity to work with as Sports Director for 3  years were the reason I kept coming back, even when times were difficult.

The WMLU Sports ceased to exist when I came to Longwood freshmen year. Without the hard work of so many dedicated people these past 4 years (and you know who you are), the campus radio station would be without what has become one of its main attractions. Winning back-to-back awards from the Virginia Association of Broadcasters in 2009 and 2010 proved to anyone who doubted us, and believed in us, that we were serious about what we did covering Longwood Lancers athletics.

With my successor already in place, it will be bittersweet to leave behind the radio station where I got my start as an aspiring sportscaster. Nevertheless, I am confident that WMLU Sports is in great hands moving forward and I am proud of what I have been able to do as Sports Director and even more proud of those who have helped me along the way.
