Meet Brady Jones, mass communication major from Spearfish.

Campus activities/clubs: Station Manager of KBHU/KJKT Radio, President of BHSU Concert Choir, Member of BHSU Honors Program

Favorite memory or experience at BHSU: One of my favorite times during my stay at BHSU would be the summer of 2014. Late in the spring semester, I had asked to be trained to do my own show on the campus radio station, the Buzz. I was given permission to come in every week during the summer to broadcast my show, and every week I fell more in love with the station. That fall semester I decided to change my major to become trained in broadcasting, and I haven't regretted that choice.

Tell me about a professor who has influenced you at BHSU: Someone who has been there for me since the first week is Dr. Courtney Huse Wika. I met her through the Honors Program on campus, and she has always been one to make herself available to any student seeking guidance. She makes a great advisor, and constantly pushes you to succeed. I think that kind of attitude is really unique to BHSU--it's the one place where professors actively engage in pushing students to broaden their horizons.

Favorite place to visit in Spearfish or the Black Hills: I can always find much-needed peace and quiet in the Canyon, specifically hiking 11th Hour. The natural beauty of the Hills never ceases to amaze me.

Future plans: My dream is to work with audio, whether that be by producing my own podcast or working as an on-air personality for a radio station. I am currently interning at the X Rock/Eagle Country stations, and I'm learning a lot about how a station operates. More importantly, though, I am learning what kind of work I want to get into when I graduate.
