The WNUR Sports ‘CatChat series is back for the fifth annual Sportsathon! In these interviews, we’ll talk to WNUR Sports alumni about their time at the station, awesome moments as a Northwestern student and their experience in the professional world. You can learn more about Sportsathon here.

As a freshman at Northwestern, Doug Meffley went to one WNUR Sports meeting but would not return to the station. However, since graduating from Medill in 2004, Meffley has worked for the Northwestern athletic department and in turn, assisted with many WNUR Sports broadcasts and even made appearances on some softball broadcasts. Meffley is now the director of digital and social communications for Northwestern athletics and serves as the public address announcer for various Wildcat athletics.
