During my time as a DJ at 91.5 WUML, I produced and hosted my own show, focusing on the best in underground, independent music from Lowell, MA and around the world. Along with curating weekly playlists, I also ran social media accounts for the show, including Facebook, Twitter, and Mixcloud.

In the show's first year, I won the title of Best College Radio DJ in North America from CMJ and the International Radio Festival. Along with the recognition for myself and the station, I flew to Zurich, Switzerland to broadcast TIS at the 6th International Radio Festival. 

Producing the show gave me great insight into the art of broadcast production, in terms of both content and sonic quality. It also helped me to understand the value of creating a show for the community at large, as shown by my focus on local music and news.
