University College Podcast Launches New Episode
Owl Radio manager Moriah Shephard featured
KENNESAW, Ga. (Dec 3, 2018) — Moriah Shephard, a journalism and emerging media major at Kennesaw State is featured this week in the University College’s latest episode of its podcast, University College Podcast.
With a passion for radio, Shepherd has worked her way up to the position of general manager at Owl Radio and has interned with numerous radio stations in the Metro Atlanta area.
Shephard is also a KSU Thrive Scholar, which is a program helping incoming qualified first year students develop the academic skills required to maintain the HOPE scholarship, integrate academically and socially to the university, progress toward graduation, and develop skills necessary to be competitive in their chosen field. She’s found the program a vital part of her success.
“Thrive has truly guided me to be the student I am today. Without them, this journey could have been a rocky road, but with their help I was able to succeed and lead others along the way,” she said.
Shephard will graduate in Spring 2019 and is already looking for a job in radio.
The podcast, which features Shephard in episode 7, runs on a biweekly schedule and is coordinated by Brandon Apter, social media and marketing specialist at University College.
