Evin Hook | Program Director |

My name is Evin or Vi… or Evin, people never really know what to call me. When I’m not purchasing black clothing online or getting a new tattoo, you can find me in any overpriced coffee shop working on playlists for my show Get Punk’d. My favorite genres of music are punk, emo, and classical. In short, I’m eternally stuck in my emo phase. I was right, Mom!

Barrett Wynn | On-Air Director |

Howdy! My name’s Barrett, and I’m an expat from LAS trying to fit in with all the College of Media kids. Outside of playing nothing but The Clash and The Black Keys during my solo hours, you’ll find me writing stories for the News Department, trying to convince myself that taking Russian 202 was a good idea, or arguing with my roommates about how whether or not the 49ers are going to the Super Bowl this season (they are, by the way). If you ever want to work at the station, or already do and want to make it big on the air, don’t be afraid to hit me up!

 Marco Landaverde  | Web Director |

Hello hello! My name’s Marco Landaverde and I’m proud to be the Web Director at WPGU. Helping people improve on their writing skills has always been a huge passion of mine, so being able to do so in this wonderful environment is truly an honor. I’m really into music production and music in general. I sing for a lil band called Ocean Child and produce music in my freetime so check us out if you can 🙂 I’ve also gotten really into making smoothies as of late. Oh and I’m really into different kinds of apples, oddly enough.

If you’re interested in any genre of music and enjoy writing, join the web writing department! The department is a supportive space where everyone can improve and provide insight. See you soon.

Shannon Dwyer | Social Media Director |

Hey I’m Shannon, the station’s Social Media Director 😀 I like watching movies, brainstorming bizarre tweets that usually end up staying in the drafts, creating art, and getting outdoors. As for music, I mainly listen to indie, alt rock, and rap. Be sure to follow WPGU on all our socials- we’re always posting about new music, upcoming events, and other fun stuff!

Lucas Mohs | Engineering Director |

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.

Anja Chen | Music Director |

Hey, I’m Anja, the music director for WPGU! I like to think that I have a superior taste in music, so this job does nothing but feed my ego. Here’s my Spotify so you can create your own opinion. Besides listening to music and making playlists, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, playing video games, and watching movies. If I were to describe the perfect date, I’d have to say April 25th, because it’s not too hot and not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

Nathan Lin | Marketing Director |

Hi y’all! My name’s Nathan and I love working with and getting to know others. Combine that with my passion for listening and producing all different genres of music, and I am thrilled to be serving as Marketing Director for WPGU! Other interests of mine include simultaneously playing the trombone and piano and being excessively knowledgeable about anything with an engine. Stop by a WPGU event or come market with us!

Robyn Pease | Media Director |

Hey y’all, I’m Robyn and I’m the media director for WPGU. Personal interests include being unnecessarily knowledgeable about opossums, playing piano without being able to read sheet music, and switching back and forth between Twitter and Tik Tok on loop.
Make sure to check out our socials and YouTube to see all the tasty content we put out!

Justin Malone | News Director |

Hey I’m Justin, the WPGU News Director! In my nonexistent free time, you can find me browsing the vastness of Twitter or flipping to C-SPAN at odd hours. Some of my favorite pastimes include being mistaken for Harry Potter, watching my sister play ice hockey, and giving engineering majors completely unwarranted political analysis. I’m always on the hunt for a good story (or Garden Salsa Sun Chips), if you have either, email me!
