Can't make it out to watch all of your favorite Stanford athletes? Don't worry! Tune into KSZU, Stanford's own radio station, to hear Sam Fisher bring you the play by play. Broadcast on 90.1 FM and live online, you never have to miss out on a thing!
How did you get involved with KZSU?
I'm going to go with two answers on this one. I'm a big fan of Jack Wang's "The Big Love Show" on every monday from 3-6PM and Nick & Noah's show, on this quarter on Thursday's from 7-9PM. Hanging around the station during either slot is always a good time.
What’s your favorite sport to watch? To broadcast?
This question's going to get me in trouble with one of the teams I cover! I'd have to say my favorite sport to watch is football. I've been a huge football fan my entire life, and football is the sport that I played at the highest level. The intensity of a football game is really unmatched. I'll be broadcasting football for the first time this fall. So far, my favorite sport to broadcast is baseball. I grew up listening to baseball on the radio every night on the clock radio next to my bed, so it's the most natural radio sport for me. I used to love just closing my eyes and letting the broadcasters paint a picture for me, and my style now completely reflects that. Hopefully people feel the same way when listening to me now.
Do you plan to pursue broadcast journalism after Stanford? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Right now I feel like a lot of Stanford athletes. I'm fully committed to my academics, but broadcasting professionally is definitely a dream of mine. I see myself following that dream for at least the next 5 years. I'm working on my sports writing as well, so hopefully there's a spot for me somewhere in the sports media world. If not, I think I could also be happy doing something else closer to my academic studies.
What else are you involved in on campus?
