This is WEMU's Taylor Pinson - reporter, board op and ATC producer.

  Taylor came to WEMU as a student employee while he was finishing his undergrad work at EMU.  We were so happy with what he did in our newsroom we offered him a gig when he graduated.  This is the kind of effort you support when you listen and donate to WEMU.  He's a man of few words, but he makes them all count!
