listeners. I have performed these duties for over 22 games -- fifteen home games, six away games and one MAC Championship game.

Executive Producer

As Faculty Manager I am responsible for the public service commitment of WMUL-FM, the campus radio station. To meet this responsibility, I have been the Executive Producer of programming
designed to meet the obligation of a federally licensed radio station. This programming consisted of entertainment, news, sports,
and public affairs.

In the past ten years as Executive Producer of programming, WMUL-FM has aired radio dramas, documentaries, in-depth public affairs/interview programs, special news/public affairs events
over one hour in length, sports call-in talk shows, and athletic contests of the university and local teams of interest. This is not small feat for a radio station whose staff is entirely composed of nonpaid students and community volunteers. The efforts in this area at WMUL-FM were noted in The Report of the On-Site Evaluation 2002-2003 team which stated in Standard 5
"In this (radio-television) sequence, radio production is of such high quality that a strikingly large number of awards have been
garnered by students in regional and national competitions. The team added in Standard 8: "It (the radio station) is well-equipped largely because the faculty station manager has been
strategic in obtaining campus-wide student fee money to support the station. The FM radio station is clearly one of the strong suits of the JMC school and has won many, many awards."

series produced
in cooperation with the
and West Virginia Public
Broadcasting. The programs
aired daily from Sunday,

The programming that required significant investment of time and talent was the producing and airing of three professional sounding documentaries on topics of interest to the Huntington community and an original radio drama.
These three documentaries are known as the Civil War Trilogy.

The first program produced in the fall of 1995 was "Soldier by Chance: The Life and Times of General Albert Gallatin Jenkins of Greenbottom, West Virginia."

The second program produced in the fall of 1998 was "A Glimpse of the Elephant: The Battle of
Barboursville 1861."

The third program produced in the fall 1999
was "Reaping the Whirlwind: The Raid on Guyandotte, Virginia 1861." The third documentary was a lengthy two and one half hour version that was packaged as a three CD set.

The airing of the three Civil War documentaries, the archiving of them online and the distribution of the CD sets to local Tri-State libraries free of charge is the fulfillment of the goal envisioned for these programs when planning their

The radio drama "War of the Worlds Y2K", was produced under my supervision by Chris Roberts. The radio drama was of such high quality that it was submitted to The RadioWorks in Hempstead, NY. The drama was accepted and distributed nationally
by The RadioWorks as part of their December 15, 2000 final regular season offerings. This is the first program produced by WMUL-FM to have national distribution.
