Caitlin Flora | General Manager

I fell in love with radio broadcasting when I served on my high school radio station in various positions starting at age 14, and I have been part of WXOU since I was a freshman at Oakland University. I began working for the station as a volunteer DJ and still host a show weekly, and I previously served on the Executive Staff as Assistant Program Director and Program Director. I’m excited to continue to grow with WXOU!


Teyler Thompkins | Program Director

Starting this semester I will be the Program Director at WXOU. This will be my fourth year here at the station. My favorite genre of music is R&B and Rap, and my favorite rapper is Eminem. I’m looking forward to this year and can’t wait to meet our new volunteers.


Brendan Triola | Assistant Program Director

This is my second year being involved with WXOU. Last year I began working for the station as a DJ, and now I have also taken on the role of Assistant Program Director. I’m looking forward to helping students get involved with our great organization!


Kerstyn Sass | Music Director

I spent my freshman year getting more involved at WXOU by working as a Music Assistant. Through the station, I was introduced to a world of music that I hadn’t experienced before, and I loved broadcasting more than I ever thought I would! I’m excited to be this year’s Music Director and to have the opportunity to continue to show the world of broadcasting our varied music schedule that sets us apart from other college radio stations.


Jake Kinnie | Promotions Director

Starting as a volunteer DJ my freshman year, WXOU has been my home away from home. I started out with my own show and would live DJ for events around campus, which later resulted in me DJing for Meadowbrook Ball late during my freshman year. I have now been the Promotions Director for the past 2 years and have never looked back. I cannot wait for the great opportunities WXOU will bring my way!



Emily Morris | News Director

I stepped into the radio world at the end of my freshman year, following reporting for a few newspapers prior. I am currently WXOU’s News Director, and I lead any newsworthy endeavors through broadcasting and writing. I’m looking forward to each turning point WXOU reaches this year, and I hope you tune it for it too!


Dakota Brecht | Sports Director

I started at WXOU as a DJ during my freshman year at Oakland. I got involved with the sports department early on and have been WXOU’s Sports Director since 2018. I can’t wait to continue to build our sports department at WXOU and see how far we can go!



Michael Pearce | Public Service Announcement Director

For my first year as an Executive Staff member, I really just want to continue improving WXOU and winning awards for our content. I have been appearing on the WXOU airwaves since my freshman year, so I’m super happy to see what I can do in my junior year to make the most out of my position as PSA director.


Isabella Mitchell | Social Media Coordinator

I got involved with WXOU during my sophomore year at Oakland University. I began volunteering with the promotions team to promote events at Oakland and in the metro Detroit area. I am very excited to serve as social media director in the 2019-2020 year and hope to increase the station’s outreach to our listeners across all social media platforms.


Anthony Dombrowski | Board Operator

I have been involved with WXOU since I was a sophomore at Oakland University. I started as a volunteer on the men’s basketball broadcasts and eventually took over as the Board Operator of the station during the 2019 Winter Semester. I will continue to work with our Sports Director to bring the best coverage of Oakland University’s sports teams onto the station. I also am the host of “Trash Talk”, a sports talk show on WXOU.


Wade Panizzoli | Events Coordinator

I was attracted to WXOU when I transferred to Oakland University in the fall of 2017 and haven’t fallen out of love since. In this back-of-house position, I communicate with artists, coworkers, and peers to plan our Mainstage concerts, meetings, and coordinate DJing for campus and outside events. As an entertainment lover, I have found a home at WXOU.


Joshua Robinson | Webmaster

I’m a sophomore here at Oakland University, and I have been involved with WXOU since I was a freshman. I started as an auxiliary staff member working with the production of the live concert series. I am now on the Executive Staff as Webmaster and will still be working with the live concert series. I look forward to an awesome year at WXOU!


Marty Shafer | Faculty Advisor, Coordinator of Broadcast Services

I first began at WXOU my freshman year of undergraduate in 2006 as a volunteer DJ. From there, I went on to serve as the Public Service and Program Director. After receiving my M.A. in Communication, I began teaching for the Department of Communication & Journalism at Oakland University, and now I also lead the station as the Faculty Advisor and Coordinator of Broadcast Services!
