Directors

Nectarios-Nicholas Kourtis | Program Director | kourtis2@illinimedia.com

Hey! My name is Nectarios! I am from Greece which means I have watched 300 and My Big Fat Greek Wedding at least one hundred times each.  I love radio and am one of the hosts of Take It Away. I’m also a student pilot and love seeing the view of Chambana from above! 

 

 

 

Tommy Lyczko | On-Air Director | tlyczko2@illinimedia.com

Hey I’m Tommy aka DJ Tommy 2 Step! I’m the On-Air Director here at WPGU. When I was 18, I went and saw Tame Impala in Chicago where I experienced a spiritual awakening and rose into the 8th level of consciousness, and things were never the same again! I’ve been straight up just chillin’ ever since. Except for the time that McDonald’s removed Hi-C Orange Lavaburst from their drink selection… I’m still not over the pain from that betrayal.

 

 

 

Glenda Villalon | Production Director | glendav2@illinimedia.com

Hello earthlings, my name is Glenda and this website says I’m WPGU’s Production Director. I’m a Chicago-native and rat enthusiast. You can find me at your local Arby’s parking lot at 3am watching cartoons and playing The Strokes. Or at the station, there too. Please don’t go looking for me… unless you wanna play some Gameboy then maybe we can be friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Theo Rosenberg | Marketing Director | tdr2@illinimedia.com

Hi! My name is Theo and I’m the Marketing Director here at WPGU. When I’m not coming up with ways to promote the station or talking about hip-hop on Can I Kick It, I like listening to music, making music, taking photos, and going to the ARC. Just in case you want to surprise me with food at the station, sushi is my favorite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Kyra Puetz  | Web Director | kyrap2@illinimedia.com

When Kyra’s not grinding away at the gym (AKA working at her desk job-not working out), you can probably find her making yet another Spotify playlist, looking up the meanings behind her favorite songs, or listening to Modern Baseball. She also enjoys browsing Reddit or binge-watching anything with John Mulaney or Andy Samberg. Give her a follow on Twitter or Spotify at kyrapuetz and shoot her some song recommendations because she is always looking for new music.

 

 

 

 

Madeline Vogt | Social Media Director | msvogt2@illinimedia.com

Hello! I’m Maddie and I’m the Social Media Director for WPGU. When I’m not taking naps at Espresso Royale, you can catch me creating weekly playlists for my show, “Writer’s Block”, or wasting time watching YouTube videos. Three words I would use to describe myself are: amazing, humble, and Minnesotan. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lucas Mohs | Engineering Director | mohs2@illinimedia.com

Lucas here! I spend my day trying to make sure that WPGU is still on the air … wish me luck.  If I’m not in the office, I’m either in class, thinking that I should be studying, or binge reading technical documents.  Yep, the only thing that keeps me sane right now is seeing a dog every now and again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jordan Kahn | Music Director | jskahn2@illinimedia.com

 I like short walks on the beach (exercising is hard) and making music even though I know literally nothing about it. I’m a CS major in training and trying not to die on a daily basis. My favorite genres of music are electronic, hip hop and indie rock.  Have any song suggestions? Send them to me at  jskahn2@illinimedia.com
