He served as co-producer of SportsVoice last year and is very excited to take over the reins of the social media accounts.

She is a Penn State Nittany Lions fan and loves Northwestern women’s basketball.

Sriman Narayanan (@_srimanarayanan) is a sophomore studying journalism and English. In his tenure at WNUR Sports, he has served as Social Media Director and has made graphics without a title.

Ryan Choe (@RyanChoe_2602) is a sophomore journalism major and data science minor in his second year at the station. Hailing from Columbia, Missouri, he holds a special place in his heart for the Mizzou Tigers and Shakespeare’s Pizza. One of his fondest memories comes from broadcasting a NU Men’s Basketball game against fifth-ranked Purdue (along with Ally Navarrete), in which a successful half-court shot and marriage proposal took place at halftime. Outside of WNUR Sports, Ryan can be found performing in the non-major Philharmonia orchestra, attending NU games, or traveling to Chicago with friends. He is excited to continue bringing Wildcat coverage and growing the station.
