Spotlight on Greg Uhrlen

Hello hello hello! Welcome back everyone! I have some wonderful and exciting news: we have a new staff member, Greg Uhrlen!!


(L to R: Greg, Alice Cooper, Greg's wife Kara)

Greg Uhrlen attended the University of Pittsburgh and received his undergraduate degree in Information Science and received a Masters Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing from Waynesburg University. Before coming to W&J Greg worked for such places as Metropolitan Life, Westinghouse, General Motors and owned two small businesses of his own.

Greg now works in the Advancement Department at W&J where he serves as the Associate Director of Advancement Information Systems. He was asked by our director to join the WNJR group in May and gladly accepted. Greg has been working with radio stations since 1983, working at the University of Pittsburgh, 106.7 the Force, 105.9 the X, and 102.5 WDVE. 

When asked what he was most excited about this year Greg said "I'm most excited about working with the students and hopefully being able to offer words of wisdom, guidance and listening to their concerns, hopes and dreams beyond W&J". He's married with two young daughters and loves music.  They travel the world chasing journeys to see beaches, historical sites and rock concerts.

Don't be a stranger and come visit Greg and the crew in the basement of Burnett!! We at the station hope your summer was wonderful and wish you an even better semester peeps!!
