Olivet College radio station names new student leaders
Aug 27, 2012

New student leaders are taking charge at Olivet College’s student-operated radio station, WOCR-FM 89.1, “The One.” Assistant Professor of Journalism and Mass Communication Gary Smith has announced that Adrienne Plourde, of Livonia, has been named station manager for the 2012-13 term; Daine Pavloski, of Rudyard, will serve as sports director; and Matthew Newby, of Lansing, will join Pavloski on the WOCR sports reporting team.

Plourde, a junior at Olivet, is a physical and special education major and a leader on the women’s golf team, having twice been named to the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) All-American Scholar Team. Plourde also earned first-team All-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) honors after the Comets won the 2011 MIAA womens golf championship.

Senior Daine Pavloski, a journalism and mass communication major, has been on the air at WOCR since his freshman year at Olivet and been on the sports broadcasting team for the last two years. Pavloski will anchor WOCR’s live coverage of Olivet Comet football and the station’s broadcasts of the area high school football game of the week. In addition to serving as play-by-play announcer for Comets’ sports, Pavloski will be an intern with the Internet sports source, “The Bleacher Report,” this fall and plans to work in sports broadcasting after graduating from Olivet.

Junior Matthew Newby is a journalism and mass communication major and sports psychology minor, who plans for a career in sports broadcasting or television entertainment after graduation. Newby will serve as color commentator/analyst for WOCR’s live sports broadcasts.

WOCR-FM 89.1, “The One” is an FCC-licensed, noncommercial educational radio station and streams all programming live at www.wocrfm.com. Each year, WOCR has a staff of 20 to 25 students who work as volunteers or as part of the Olivet College student employment program. Students create their own radio shows and can choose the type of music they want to play on-air. The radio station is part of the Journalism and Mass Communication Program at Olivet, but students in any major field may join the student staff.
