Hi my name is Julian Toro, I'm a Senior philosophy major with a minor in communications from Harlem, New York.

I will be a senior Communication major at SUNY Geneseo in the fall and created Chalk Talk with Nate and Luke this past spring. On campus I have been heavily involved with athletic media as Sports Editor of The Lamron, as an intern in the Athletic Communications department, and now as the host of our weekly sports talk show on WGSU. So tune in on Fridays at 7:30 for all things Geneseo athletics, MLB, NFL, NBA and more!

Nathan Hubbard '24

Assistant Sports Director and Chalk Talk Co-host


Hello! My name is Nathan Hubbard and I am one of three hosts of Chalk Talk on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. I’m going to be a senior this fall, studying Communication. Dylan, one of my co-hosts, had dragged me along for this radio show, but I am forever grateful that he did. Media is my newfound passion, and you can catch me in The Lamron and doing work within Geneseo Athletics. I will hopefully be doing something new with WGSU in the coming future, so keep an eye out! And don’t forget… tune in on Fridays at 7:30 for all things Geneseo athletics, MLB, NFL, NBA, and more!



Luke Coyne '24

Hi I’m Luke Coyne. I am a co host of Chalk talk sports show with my fellow partners Dylan and Nathan.  Our show is Monday nights at 6:30. I also have done a few ice knights play-by-play announcing in the past. I am a senior from Long Island studying communications. I am on the club baseball team here and on the executive board for The Morgan’s Message student athlete mental health club here at Geneseo. I am also big into music and I like many different genres but my favorite is Rock. I love being a part WGSU and hope I can apply the skills from the radio station to my career in the future.

Encouragement Hour Host

Hello!  My name is Bill Jones (aka DJ Wheels) and I host Encouragement Hour on Thursdays at 2pm.  I have been a longtime listener of WGSU (over 20 years) and I am so very grateful to share some positive music over the airwaves to brighten your day!  I was inspired to join the station after reading the SUNY Geneseo Campus Climate survey, where students indicated that there was a lack of religious resources on campus.  I knew that I wanted to help, but I wasn't sure how to contribute.  When I first came to visit the station during its 60th Anniversary Open House, I felt called to share some worship songs.  When I'm not playing uplifting music at WGSU, you can find me at Fraser Hall Library as SUNY Geneseo's Digital Resources and Systems Librarian.

Justin Blakesslee '24

Genesee Valley News Report Journalist and Anchor

I’m on Geneseo Snail, the school’s club Ultimate Frisbee Team (One Snail, One Trail), which I’ve been apart of since my first semester. Tune in on Wednesday evenings to catch the most timely and prominent international, national, and local level stories each week!

As WGSU's Operations Manager, I oversee daily operations at the station, including programming, music selection, and helping to produce live shows. I graduated from SUNY Geneseo as a Communication major with a Philosophy minor in 2023 after being involved with WGSU for my whole college career as a student staffer, DJ, and manager. WGSU was a highlight of my Geneseo student experience and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with the station in my professional life.
