Meet Sean

Duties: As station manager of Titan TV, I am in charge of communicating with Titan TV staff, producers, and students. I am the liaison between the station, the school, and the community. I’m also in charge of of helping oversee and maintain the budget for the station and I attend weekly meetings with the advisor, the executive board, and producers.

Year/Major/Minor: I am a senior Radio-TV-Film major with a Music Industry minor.

Mini Bio: I’m from a tiny town in Wisconsin called Stratford. Growing up, the local news anchors were my heroes and that definitely influenced my career choice. Here at UWO, however, I started working on live sports remotes and instantly fell in love with it. In the past I’ve been Titan TV’s Sports Director, and I’ve also worked for CBS on the sidelines of Lambeau Field as a broadcast utility. Over this past summer, I interned with the Wisconsin Woodchucks, a Northwoods League baseball team, as their Video/Webcast Intern and directed live broadcasts of their games. I was also recently hired by the Green Bay Packers in house production team as a sideline grip. I am excited to be Titan TV’s Station Manager this year, and I am looking forward to everything TTV has in store for the year.

Hobbies: Watching TV (especially sports), cooking, camping and hiking

Favorite TV Show/Movie: “Futurama” and “M*A*S*H”

Favorite Titan TV Memory: I have too many Titan TV memories to count, but my favorite goes all the way back to my sophomore year. I was still kind of new to sports remotes, but I wanted to learn more about the more advanced positions on the broadcast, so I asked the current Sports Director, Ross, if I could shadow him as he directed. It was during a football game and everything was going well until the third quarter when something began to malfunction. Ross decided to pass the director’s headset to me and have me begin my first time directing on the fly as he fixed the problem. He had me continue to direct for the rest of the game, it obviously wasn’t a perfect broadcast, but it was still one of the cooler things to happen to me.

Year/Major/Minor: I am a junior majoring in Radio-TV-Film and minoring in the Music Industry.

Mini Bio: I am from Appleton, WI ,and whenever I have free time, I am always watching a TV show, so I figured, why not go to school to learn how to make them? The RTF program has allowed me to dip my foot into everything to find out exactly what I am interested in as a career after graduation. I joined Titan TV my freshman year just to learn more about it and haven’t regretted it. Outside of Titan TV, I have a love for the theater and try to attend as many performances as I can.

Hobbies: Watching TV (obviously), video games, hanging out with friends

Favorite TV Show/Movie: “Quantico” and “New Girl”

Favorite Titan TV Memory:

During the production “Live from AC West,” I was the technical director, and it hit a point where I was directing, technical directing, and assistant directing all at once. It was only for about five minutes or so. The AD and director were trying to quickly figure out a problem with one of our programs and Ashley, the director, just told me to take the wheel while they solved the problem. While my brain had to multitask many different things, it taught me a lot and gave me the confidence I needed to feel comfortable in advanced positions.

On top of journalism, I found Radio-TV-Film and decided to double major, because why not? I love watching movies and have always enjoyed learning how movies are made.
