Rachael Hershon

Rachael Hershon, Personnel Director


Hello! My name is Rachael Hershon, and I’m a sophomore majoring in English and Creative writing and minoring in Secondary Teaching. I started DJing as a Freshman, and began to love this new way of communicating and expressing myself. As someone who is pretty reserved, beingg a DJ has given me more of a voice. I love being Personnel Director because I get to share something I’m excited about with others. My show is on Thursdays from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM, and I play music from all different genres. If you’d like to contact me, you can reach me at personnel@wbrs.org. Thanks for reading!
