Our first DJ of the Week is Tom Aberman, who is Promotions Manager for WCNU Radio and a lover of music. Tom has been a member of WCNU Radio for three years and he began his show during his freshmen year. Before he came to CNU and joined WCNU Radio, Tom had been in an internship with Sirius XM Radio on a political talk show. When he saw former WCNU Radio President Zach Whitten and WCNU Radio’s booth at club fair his freshmen year, he joined up and began his college radio experience.
Tom’s show: “Tom and Barbour Awesome Albums, Great Job” has Tom and his friend Barbour Ulrich on the mic where they talk about and play an entire album for their two hour show. The music that Tom usually selects for his show are electronic music and experimental hip hop. “Tom and Barbour Awesome Albums, Great Job” is on every Sunday from 12-2pm and this show was Tom’s gateway into WCNU Radio’s executive board.
Although he was passionate about music and WCNU, Tom was initially hesitant to join WCNU Radio’s Eboard. Zach Whitten saw Tom’s passion and potential so for three years he urged Tom to apply for WCNU leadership. Eventually Tom agreed to apply and he was accepted into the position of Promotions Manager, which Tom was grateful for because that was the position he thought fit the best. Tom had already been using creative and unconventional methods to promote his show on social media so is currently applying those skills to WCNU Radio as a whole.
Most of Tom’s time is filled with classes and working on projects for WCNU Radio but in his free time Tom likes to explore new forms of music and has recently picked up DJing for parties. Tom is a junior planning to graduate with a Bachelor’s in Communication and he hopes to work for a marketing or public relations company in Washington DC or New York.
