Member of the Week: Allyson Smith
Our Member of the Week is Ally Smith. Ally joined WZIP in the Spring of 2016 and is a member of the News and Special Projects Department. She loves being a part of WZIP because she gets to know a lot of great people.
She was nominated for Member of the Week because her news packages have continued to get better and better. The packages are always fully completed and always turned in on time. She has additionally filled in as the news director when help was needed. With her leadership, and dedication, she was able to produce an entire half hour show. She has gone above and beyond with all the work she does.
Ally’s favorite animals are sloths, her favorite color is red, and her favorite food is paella. When asked what she liked to do in her free time, she responded, “what is free time? I spend all of my time in the station.” Her favorite band is Blink 182 and if she could meet any celebrity, she would meet Mark Hoppus.
She is a Media Production major at the University of Akron. Her dream job is to travel around the world to make documentaries. Her advice to new members is, “the work will be hard at first, but as long as you keep working and persevere, it will get easier and in the end, it will be very rewarding.”
