Raymond-Boyd

Name: Raymond Boyd

Do you have any prior experience in Radio?

For the past three years I have been a member of WHIP Radio at Temple University. Our station was amongst the best in the country and was featured on iHeart Radio. In my time I served as an on-air personality as well as Sports Director. I hosted three sports programs while on WHIP and managed a team of 20 on-airs. I also oversaw three sports shows, developed two new sports shows and directed all live broadcast of Temple football and basketball. I also handled the social media aspects of our sports department as well.

What aspects of Radio are you most interested in?

My greatest area of interest is in being an on-air personality. I have experience working behind the scenes as well but I believe my personality and knowledge make me an ideal host for sports talk radio.

What are you looking to gain by being in this contest?

I am looking to gain some vital hands on experience at a station that defined sports talk radio in Philadelphia. Growing up listening to WIP helped to mold my love for sports and having the opportunity to be a part of the WIP family would be an honor for me.

If selected to be the winner, why do you think that you would be a good fit with SportsRadio 94 WIP?

I think my greatest asset to WIP would be my fresh approach to sports talk radio. I have a ton of opinions and ideas for how to revolutionize radio for the 21st Century audience. I think I bring a vast amount of Philadelphia sports knowledge to the table as well. I have grown up following these teams and going to Temple University has given me the opportunity to cover these teams as did my internship at Comcast Sportsnet. I honestly believe that radio is in a vital transitional period and I think I can be an asset to that period.
