Q&A with Zach Wadley

Q: What are some of your responsibilities on campus?

A: It’s pretty broad. Anything media with athletics. The main things are running and all of the athletics social media channels, staffing for games, and coordinating with outside media.

Q: What are you looking forward to most this fall?

A: We have a new website coming. We also partnered with a company for social media graphics. I’m also just excited to be here. Last year, I started so close to the beginning of fall sports seasons that I had no time to do anything before the year. It’s been nice to have a full summer.

Q: When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I wanted to be an ESPN broadcaster.
