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.

Alice Cooper. Madonna. And Miles Davis. What do these three musicians all have in common? They are all members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Voting is underway for the 2018 inductees and we're here to discuss it with you.

Who did Joe Lee and Geoff Herbert vote to send to the Hall of Fame? Find out this week on Pop Life.

Home field advantage can be the deciding factor in a closely contested sporting event. It's largely what NBA and NFL teams work so hard to obtain heading into the playoffs.

When Syracuse and Kansas met earlier this year neither team had a home court advantage. That was probably something SU should be thankful about, as WAER's Noah Eagles takes a look at what make Kansas so unbeatable at home.

This week on Science on the Radio Dr. Marvin Druger is talking Thermodynamics and specifically Entropy. Entropy is a measure of the degree of disorder in any isolated system, high Entropy means greater disorder.

Hear Science on the Radio with Dr. Marvin Druger Wednesday evenings at 8:35 on WAER.

What Is City Limits?

In short, City Limits is a year-long multi-platform civic engagement project produced by WAER Public Media that examines and explores poverty in Syracuse.

If you need a tool for a specific project, you'll want to make sure it's a brand you trust. That's the same way that NFL teams approach the draft each spring. They want to make sure they're drafting players who can do the job.

Lobsters comprise a family of large marine crustaceans.

Lobsters have long bodies with muscular tails, and live in crevices or burrows on the sea floor. Three of their five pairs of legs have claws, including the first pair, which are usually much larger than the others. Highly prized as seafood, lobsters are economically important, and are often one of the most profitable commodities in coastal areas they populate

Find out even more about our little friend the Lobster this week with Dr. Marvin Druger on Science on the Radio.
