Content & Operations Manager

 I’ve always been enamored by the allure of radio. Maybe it was because my father worked in radio. Maybe it was the personal connection I felt with the hosts on the microphone. Whatever it was, I’ve been hooked on it for as long as I can remember. From Sports Talk, to Public Radio storytelling, to Alternative Rock I always found something different about each format that I appreciate. 

 As a student at Onondaga Community College in 2008 I had the opportunity to intern with Gomez and Dave on TK99 and I learned so much about the craft of putting together a successful morning show. I finished up my Radio Production degree at SUNY Fredonia, as an active member of their student radio program, hosting a weekly sports talk show.

 In 2011 I started working for the Mars Hill Network in Syracuse as their Morning Show Sports Announcer and ended up working as their Traffic Manager. Eventually I would transition into their Program Director and after nearly six years at the network I accepted a position with WAER. As someone who has enjoyed storytelling podcasts for years joining WAER has been a true pleasure. The opportunity to share stories from members of a community that has been my home for nearly my entire life was what drew me to WAER. 

  When I’m not poking around the radio station I enjoy taking day trips with my wife Chelsea and our son Jack.

Sounds of the Season continues and this week we take the time to examine what is happening muscially on a local level. Joining host Kevin Kloss this time around is Jess Novak from the Jess Novak Band. She's been an active member of the music community for a number of years and talks about how she's seen it change in that time.

She also gives us some names of local musicians to give a try, along with sharing  her experience as a female musician in Central New York.

The USDA estimates that there are 45 million people in America using SNAP.  City Limits Katie Zilcosky examines how proposed changes to the food nutrition program will impact local families, food security, and agriculture in our region.

In 2017, there were some 798 homeless in the greater Syracuse area living in emergency shelters or transitional housing.  Many were unsheltered.  This episode of City Limits on the Front Lines, supported by the Central New York Community Foundation, is a story of personal redemption, shared responsibility, and the power of community. 

Joe Lee joined Al-Amin Muhammad, once a homeless statistic himself, and a dedicated core of volunteers one Saturday morning as they set out to change lives one sandwich at a time.

This past Friday, WAER launced a four-part series diving into music discovery called Sounds of the Season.  With Summertime in full swing the season for new music is upon us and throughout the month of July,  host Kevin Kloss hopes to introduce listeners to new music.

Particle physics is the branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that includes matter and radiation. Although the word particle may often refer to various types of very small objects  particle physics often times deals with investigating the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the fundamental interactions necessary to explain their behavior.
