Juliana Spano is a junior from Smithtown, New York majoring in political communications.
True Life: I’m part of WRHU (Radio Hofstra University)
Being part of the radio station has given me tons of experience. I have been able to interview celebrities and community leaders, report at various events, and produce my own news show. It’s given me amazing networking opportunities as well. I frequently go into the city to meet with professionals. The cool thing about our station is that you can virtually do whatever you want. We have a plethora of different music shows, including classic rock, top 40, and even polka! If you are interested in sports, you can report on our Hofstra games as well as the Long Island Ducks and New York Cosmo teams.
Personally, I have interviewed local politicians such as Rob Astorino and Bruce Blakeman. As a political communications major in the School of Communications it has given me an exponential amount of experience in the field. As a host for the morning show, I have to have weekly interviews to air and discuss current events. It has really increased my teamwork, leadership, and time management skills. I encourage anyone—no matter what major—to get involved!
