iHeart Radio Executive Gives Feedback to Radio Students

Published: February 5, 2018.

Lewis University radio students received feedback on their projects from media executive Derrick Brown. The former Lewis University student is currently director of Urban Programming at iHeartMedia.

The Joliet native visited Advanced Radio students enrolled in class taught by John Carey, associate professor/director of Electronic Media. During his discussion, he talked about his current role in overseeing the on-air, online and social brands of Adult R&B WVAZ-FM (V103), Hip-Hop 107-5 WGCI-FM and Gospel-formatted Inspiration 1390 (WGRB-AM). Brown also provides support for stations around the country as the urban adult contemporary format coordinator for iHeartMedia.

Brown reviewed current student projects and provided feedback to the students. “It was very helpful to hear how my project could be improved from a media executive that has influence throughout the country,” commented Meaghan Glavac, Lewis University student and Manager of Lewis University WLRA radio station.

“I remember when Derrick was here as a student and on-air with WLRA and we’re grateful that Derrick could reconnect with us on campus,” said Carey. “Having former students who are now in the industry talk with our current students is a real advantage of our program.
