Hey everyone! I am a senior from Lafayette, LA currently studying Neuroscience and Philosophy. I saw a Facebook post advertising WRVU my freshman year, and it was love at first sight. We have been going strong for three years now, and I am looking forward to another exciting year together. This year I hope to find new ways to expand the blog so that it can continue to complement our already world-famous radio DJ’ing. If you ever have a cool idea for the blog or just want to hang out, feel free to come by my office hours.
Program Director: Meredith Mattlin
Office Hours: 3-4pm Friday
Hi everyone! I’m a senior studying Medicine, Health, & Society, Sociology, and Film. I am very excited to serve as WRVU’s Program Director this year! I oversee the blog, make videos/film interviews for the station, and program the station’s schedule. I also try to relax the masses on my show, “Therapy,” with co-host Lane Underdahl. We play a lot of angry-melancholy post-punk stuff and love sadboy jams even though I hate the term “sadboy.” If you ever want to hang or read me cryptic messages or complain about life’s troubles, feel free to stop by my office hours!
Music Director: Nick Markman
Office Hours: 12:15-1:00pm Friday
What’s good? I’m a junior from Laguna Beach, CA studying Psychology, Music History/Literature, and Corporate Strategy. I’m incredibly happy to have been part of the WRVU family since my freshman year, and beyond thrilled to be serving as a Music Director for the first time. Most of the music I like is experimental, psychedelic, and/or abrasive, but I’ve got appreciation and attention to detail for just about all music. When I’m not DJing and passionately crafting our rotation lineup, you might find me at Percy Warner or Centennial Park.
Music Director: Travis Villatoro
Office Hours: 11:15am-12:15pm Tuesday
“Hey folks! I’m Travis Villatoro, a senior studying mechanical engineering. I’ve been a DJ here at WRVU since my freshman year and I’m stoked to be back as an MD again this year. I’m lucky enough to host a show with fellow E-staffer, Heather Jackson. Please feel free to drop by the station during our show or my office hours so we can get schwifty.”
Music Director: Rachel Sapp
Office Hours: 1-2pm Monday
Marketing Director: Heather Jackson
Office Hours: 8-9am Tuesday
Ay-oh. I am toting that junior status this year with a major in English and a handy-dandy minor in corporate strategy. I was born and raised in the heart of the bluegrass, and I spend my days watching “I Love Lucy” reruns and my nights at grimy concert venues. My music tastes are often silly and sporadic, but lately I find myself screaming lyrics to a lot of folk punk and going weak in the knees for quality indie pop. I contain all of the excitement to continue on the oh so elite WRVU staff this year!
Online Director: Arturo Perez
Office Hours: TBD
What’s up! I’m a sophomore from South Florida studying Computer Science and Math. I’m tasked with running this very website you are currently perusing through – ain’t it a beaut. Musically I’m at a crossroads: I grew up on Pink Floyd and Phish but now my playlists vary from Tycho to Vulfpeck to BadBadNotGood. Seriously, what a time to be alive.
Training Director: Morgan Levy
Office Hours: 11:15-12:15pm Tuesday
Podcast Director: Ellen Andrews
Office Hours: 11:15-12:15pm Monday
I’m a fun-loving senior studying neuroscience here at Vandy. I am a die-hard Spurs fan and a snob when it comes to enchiladas (which is just another to say “I was born and bred in San Antonio, Texas”). I have been a part of WRVU for three years and E-staff meetings are my favorite hour of the week. You can usually catch me listening to Dr.Dog, Fleet Foxes, or This American Life. Tune into my show, Some Things Considered, or drop by my office hours to hear some corny jokes! If you have any questions about our podcasts or you would like to join the podcast team, I’m the gal you should talk to.
Archive Director: Brandon Bout
Office Hours: 2:00-3:00pm Tuesday
I’m a senior from Chattanooga, TN studying chemical engineering and mathematics. When not around campus doing problem sets or holed up in my room playing guitar, I can often be found listening to some quality noisy music or hanging around at Satay Thai Nashville (shameless plug) with friends. My show Law & Order: WRVU, which I co-host with Ice-T, usually features lots of heinous (ha) tracks from noise rock to experimental and the like. DUN DUN.
Hip-Hop Director: Bo Kennedy
Office Hours: 4:15-5:15pm Thursday
My name’s Bo Kennedy, and I’m the hip-hop specialist for WRVU. Swing by my office hour at 5 pm on Thursday to discuss hip-hop or anything at all. I’m a junior who’s been a part of the station since I started my Vanderbilt career. I’m a huge Nashville Predators fan- welcome to Nashville, P.K. Subban. Give The Sun’s Tirade by Isaiah Rashad a listen- it’s the rap album of 2016.
Blog Director: Laura Hillsman
Office Hours: 9:30-10:30am Friday
Hey everyone! I’m a senior from outside of Philadelphia hoping to delay my entrance into the real world by applying to law schools. While I’m at Vanderbilt I’ve been majoring in Communication Studies with a minor in Sociology and in my last two semesters I’m trying to tack on an extra minor in Corporate Strategy. This is my fourth year with WRVU.
