WNUR Sports Executive Board:

Ben Krieger (@TheBenKrieger) is a junior studying journalism. He’s from sunny Los Angeles and never stops talking about how much he loves Mexican food. Or talking in general. He’s wanted to be a broadcaster his whole life thanks to Vin Scully, and he also wouldn’t mind seeing the Dodgers win a World Series at some point. Aside from WNUR Sports, he spends most of his time at Northwestern moonlighting as an insane fan at all Wildcat events he’s not covering.
Parker Johnson (@pkjkeeper4) is a junior in Medill from Asheville, North Carolina. He was a goalkeeper and captain on the soccer pitch, and a point guard/defensive stopper for the Fighting Lepers of the Asheville Church Basketball League. He roots for the better blue in Carolina (Tar Heels), the more successful team in North London (Arsenal FC), and a host of Denver pro teams (Broncos, Nuggets, Rockies). He spends his free time playing soccer and watching obscure sports like Rugby 7s and netball on his roommate’s Apple TV. Favorite line of sports commentary: “If his brains was leather, he wouldn’t have enough to saddle a junebug.” – Don Sutton, Atlanta Braves radio.
Kevin Sweeney (@CBB_Central) is a sophomore in Medill from Albany, NY. He spends most of his time watching college basketball, tweeting about everyone from Zion Williamson and Duke to Antoine Davis at Detroit. Despite his New York roots, he is a big Red Sox fan and will mention that whenever he gets the chance. He hopes to be the next Jon Rothstein, minus all the weird cliché tweets. 
Drew Myers is a first year from New York studying political science in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. He has a strong passion for sports, closely following and supporting both the Patriots and the Yankees for his entire life (yes, you heard that right). While he is knowledgeable on many sports, he has come to the satisfying conclusion that baseball is undeniably the best sport to follow. On top of that, he is becoming a die-hard Northwestern fan, cheering on his home team from the broadcast booth or the stands. GO CATS!
Zach Koons (@zachkoons) is a junior from Alexandria, VA, majoring in journalism. Born near the Washington D.C area, he is loyal to the DMV sports teams (The Nats, Caps, and Wizards). When it comes to the NFL, he roots for the Patriots, making him the most hated sports fan on this side of the Mississippi. While not broadcasting, Zach can be found taking long walks on the beach or playing a game of pick-up basketball way too competitively. He hopes to pursue a career in either sports broadcasting or investigative journalism.
Jake Liker (@JakeLiker) is a sophomore studying journalism. He was born and raised in Los Angeles, a fact he brings up at least once a week. He is a devout supporter of the Green Bay Packers, the UCLA Bruins, and Tottenham Hotspur, and a fan of his hometown Lakers and Kings. He is coming off of a strong first season as WNUR Sports’ resident bracketologist, beating ESPN’s Joe Lunardi and CBS’s Jerry Palm in the Bracket Matrix. When he’s not studying or destroying his sleep cycle to watch a sporting event, he’s keeping up with pop culture and criminal justice reform. He hopes to be a professional play-by-play broadcaster.
Eli Karp (@karp_eli) is a first year from Westchester, New York, studying journalism. He is a big New York sports fan, supporting the Giants, Rangers, Yankees and (sometimes) Knicks. When he’s not broadcasting or watching Big Ten athletics, Eli can be found lying in a sunny spot on campus if it’s over 50 degrees or hunting down the best Italian food in the area. He hopes to become a play-by-play broadcaster.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Michael Zellner, I am with The Morgan at Loyola Station. We are a luxury apartment building on the citys north side. I am wondering what the pricing format is for advertising. We are more interested in maybe a radio dj reading an ad rather than creating a commercial. Can you tell me a little more about that please? Specifically pricing.
