Meet the Team: 10 Questions w/ Dan Martinez
Updated: Feb 16, 2021
This article is part of a five-part series asking 10 questions to each person who makes
Weber State Weekly a reality.
Our goal: help our fellow Wildcats get to know the people behind the show.
In the first installment of our "Meet the Team" series, we'll be chatting with Daniel Martinez (aka "The Whisper in Your Ear"), our amazing producer.
Dan is the man behind the curtain who helps organize our segments, keep us on track, and push us a little when we're being Weber homers a little too much.
Dan graduated from Weber State in 2015 with a BS in Digital Media and Communications. He's a proud alumnus of both KWCR and Studio 76.
