Hello, My Name is Da’Jzon and I joined the Townsquare Media Southwest Michigan team as their Production Director in November of 2021. I graduated from Adrian College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a minor in Journalism. I spent some time working for Adrian College Television while also writing sports and opinion pieces for "The College World", Adrian College's School Newspaper. Growing up I fell in love with sports very quickly, looking to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. In my free time, I podcast about all things lacrosse, play video games and watch YouTube, Twitch, Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming platforms. I have always dreamed of working for local media and my dream has finally come true. Fun Fact: I listened to Dana Marshall on the WKFR morning show while I was in high school during the years 2014-2017 Hometown; Experience: Born and Raised in Good Ole Kalamazoo, Michigan
