Sara Sturtevant

Broadcaster

I am a junior from New Bedford, Massachusetts majoring in public relations with a minor in journalism. I am a big New England sports fan by default, but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! One of my favorite memories from my Boston sports experiences is the time I got to run the bases at Fenway after a game; that was wicked cool! I’ve played sports my entire life including soccer, basketball, softball, and even rugby. I’ve always loved everything about sports, from the atmosphere of the crowd to the competition itself. My involvement with the station includes briefly broadcasting for Women’s Basketball and Men’s Ice Hockey. In the past, I have interned for the NECBL’s New Bedford Bay Sox where I learned about in-game entertainment and game day relations. I am also involved with the music side of WTBU where I have written album reviews and am excited to interview rising musicians. Besides music and sports, my hobbies include photography, running, hiking, and traveling.

Max is a sophomore from Toledo, Ohio studying journalism. He covers basketball for WTBU and the Daily Free Press, but his true passions are college football and boxing, which is why he hosts podcasts on both. Despite being from Ohio, Max is a massive Michigan football fan and is consistently disappointed at the end of every November when Michigan losses to Ohio State and doesn’t win the Big 10. If you think being a Michigan football isn’t hard enough, Max is also a committed Detroit sports fan for hockey, basketball, and baseball, as well as a fan of the Cleveland Browns for football. In his free time Max enjoys playing his saxophone, listening to music, and eating an unhealthy Midwestern diet.
