Advisor Gary Michaels: Gary started his radio career in central Minnesota where he grew up, and it has taken him to Colorado multiple times, Texas, and Wisconsin. He keeps ending up in Colorado, and you can attribute that to his love for mountain biking, skiing powder, and kayaking on the beautiful landscape this great state has. His experience in broadcasting spans across the board from programming and production to sales and marketing. He enjoys spending time with his KMSA team and teaching them all about the radio world.


Tyler MacDonald: Year: Sophomore, Major: Marketing, I am from Fruita, CO. I have a lots of favorite music Various tunes. It either has 2 billion or 2 streams on Spotify, with no in-between. My passion for the radio is that I like upholding and spreading the human values that great organizations have. I believe that KMSA is very much in touch with its role as a generator of fun and community, so I want to make sure these virtues enduringly correspond with the company.

In addition to taking classes through CMU, I am working as a student-teacher at Fruita Middle School. I'm from the tiny town of Grover, Colorado. My early musical influences were the classic rock and country of my parents and Tony Hawk's American Wasteland soundtrack. My favorite music includes hip-hop, black metal, doom metal, hardcore punk, drum and bass, classic funk, and anything psychedelic or experimental. I need music to fit every emotion. More and more, I find songs that make me feel something new. I'm very happy to be a part of the station because music is one of the most important, and definitely one of the most fun, ways we communicate. It has always kept me inspired to keep going, so being in a place where part of what I do is search for new music is a dream come true. I'm beyond excited to use my time in this position to support independent and unsung artists, our local creative community,  and independent thought.
