"While interning at WEAA, I learned how to write news scripts and edit audio using Adobe Audition. WEAA has taught me that radio is for me. Mr. Reid, the station's news director, taught me skills about radio that I can take with me in my career. I am really grateful for WEAA. I feel with this opportunity I am closer to getting a job in my career field."

Hello everyone! My name is Kenya Chase-Mercer, a junior multiplatform production major from Baltimore, MD.

 

 I am so excited to be volunteering at WEAA 88.9 FM with Ms. Mykel Hunter as it has always been a dream of mine to be on the radio. 

 

Growing up, I have loved being in front of the camera and that has led me to being an aspiring film actress and director. 

 

I am Shyne Boggs and I'm from Coatesville, PA. I'm a hardworking and dedicated individual who excels in stress induced situations and has a knack for dealing with people.

 

Currently, I'm studying multiplatform production at Morgan State University and I’m pursuing experiences within the entertainment industry.

 

In high school, I was the captain of the girls basketball team for 3 years due to my phenomenal leadership and teamwork skills.
