Four WSOU Students Named NAB Student Scholars

Seton Hall Students Angelo Maltese, Justine Strzepek, Erin Kelly, and Alicia Campos have all been chosen as participants in the National Association of Broadcasters’ Student Scholars Program.

South Orange, N.J. – Four staff members of WSOU 89.5 FM, the student-run radio station of Seton Hall University, have been selected as National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Student Scholars.  As Student Scholars, the recipients receive a scholarship to attend the 2017 NAB Radio Show (Sept. 5 – 8) in Austin, TX, where the students will participate in special educational programming and networking events designed specifically for college students.  The students will also take advantage of the conference’s professional management, programming, sales/marketing, content creation, legal, research, and technology sessions.

“This is an amazing opportunity for these Seton Hall students,” said WSOU general manager Mark Maben.  “That four WSOU staff members were selected by the NAB for their Student Scholars Program speaks to both the passion our students have for radio and the outstanding training and education they receive at WSOU and Seton Hall’s College of Communication and the Arts.”

The four students named as NAB Student Scholars are:

  • Senior Angelo Maltese, WSOU staff representative from Kenilworth, N.J.
  • Junior Justine Strzepek, WSOU assistant news director from Marcy, N.Y.

“As someone who has been inspired by my experiences at WSOU to pursue a radio career, I am thrilled to be part of the Student Scholars Program,” said WSOU station manager Alicia Campos.  “I am eager to connect not only with students from across the country who are fellow Student Scholars, but with the many professionals who will be the NAB Radio Show next week.  So many students involved in college radio want to become the future leaders of the radio and audio revolution that is taking place right now.” 

Having four students selected for this competitive program is a record number for WSOU.  Accompanying Campos, Kelly, Maltese, and Strzepek will be Jennifer Kajzer, the station’s Underwriting Sales and Marketing Manager.  More information about the NAB Student Scholars Program can be found at  For more on the NAB Radio Show, visit
