Occasionally in life, you cross paths with someone who serendipitously makes a mark on your life, leaves a lasting impression and actually alters your future.  Such was the case with me and Connie Stevens – a long time WOUB employee.

Connie spent more than 20 years at WOUB from November 1979 through June 2001 and most of that time as WOUB AM Program Coordinator. I am sure most of you remember her voice and her easy-going “on-air” style as she greeted you every weekday morning for a number of years.

Change is a cornerstone of any media enterprise today and WOUB Public Media is no exception.

Sometimes, it's difficult for any of us to change routines or ways to which we are accustomed. However, over the past year, we have embraced change at WOUB and made it our friend.

Rivalries and competition are part of our daily existence and they certainly are part of university life. For the most part – rivalries are good things and are between entities of comparable abilities and mutual respect.

There are special rivalries in life and especially in sports. Some are new-found and some go back hundreds of years. Some are limited to a particular sport like the Ohio State-Michigan football rivalry and some university rivalries are more all-encompassing including every sport, campus culture and even academics.

As we entered a new century, 2001 was a year of upheaval. It was the events of September 11 that launched this country and the media on paths of change.

It was a line of demarcation in many people’s lives and in the collective life of our country. The pulse of the nation has never been the same and neither would be our PASSION for instant communication.

Sports coverage has always been important to the WOUB Center for Public Media and to the students who work here – but now it has taken on greater emphasis for the benefit of all.

We have expanded our overall sports coverage this academic year to provide you – members of our audience – with the best opportunities to stay abreast of all regional sports news. Our expanded coverage also gives our students greater opportunities to practice professional sports journalism at the highest levels.
