Joe Saputo – 104.3 WOMC

“WXOU was the best to me during my time at Oakland University.”

That’s what Joe Saputo said – now a Sales Assistant for the Music Pillar of CBS Detroit, including 104.3 WOMC. He started at WXOU in February of 2010, and stayed until May 2014.


“I was a sports reporter, moved on to News Director, then went on to a volunteer role and was a sad excuse for Staff Member at Large.”

I would highly suggest to any college kid to join a club, whether it be WXOU or not, because you will make life long friends and feel like you did more than get a piece of paper from a college. You get life long memories and life long friendships,” Saputo said.

These days?

“I have been working extremely hard in commercial radio. Beginning in promotions and moving on into sales.”

Saputo says his biggest memory was when he was a part of the very first class to earn a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Station of the Year gold record in 2012.

Saputo says if you are thinking of applying to work at WXOU, do it and see if it fits.
“I joined because I needed something on my resume and thought that WXOU would be a good fit. It ended being my love when I was in college and now I’m in my dream business.”
