Way to go, Kyle!

Scholarship Spotlight: Kyle Molinelli from The University of Akron 🎉

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, Kyle has had sports and entertainment in his blood. The youngest of the six Molinelli kids, Kyle has had to find ways to stick out and earn attention since he was a kid. With a unique ability to make people laugh and always pay attention, Kyle grew up finding new ways to entertain. Mix that with a love of sports, that stemmed from watching a young Lebron James play in his high school, Kyle knew he had to mix those two passions in some form.

When it came time for Kyle to decide a career path when entering college at the University of Akron, It finally hit him while watching Cleveland Cavaliers game on television: Kyle wanted to be in sports broadcasting. He started his journey by joining Akron’s student radio station, 88.1 WZIP-FM, and eventually earning the position of Sports Director.

Kyle also started studying and paying attention to some of sports broadcasting’s biggest voices. Including Kyle’s personal favorites (and Cleveland’s) Jim Donovan, Tom Hamilton, and Fred McLeod. So when Fred’s memorial scholarship was announced, Kyle knew he had to throw his name in his hat. Low and behold, he won.

Kyle now knows that this is his calling, and his destiny. Now with the job of honoring the McLeod name, Kyle is continuing his journey to be the best in every field he journeys in!

I like the alternative take over thanks for playing some modern rock.
Please don't ever play country music again. There's enough stations around that play that. And definitely not enough in our area that play true hip-hop.

This song on right now is so annoying
