Applause arose from the Horsetooth Room in the Academic Village last night at 6:30 p.m. as current KCSU Station Manager Dylan Wray announced that Michael Sakas would take the reigns as station manager next year.

“We had two very good candidates, but Michael will be great,” Wray said. “She has experience with public relations, but more important she has very accomplishable goals for next year.”

Wray added that Sakas plans to improve communications within KCSU and also with the community.

“KCSU has been a huge influence on my college career thus far,” Sakas said. “It’s one of the reasons I stayed at CSU.

Sakas does not plan to implement any major changes for next year.

“My vision is to unify all employees, volunteers, DJs and managers into one really great station,” Sakas said.

Sakas will begin her position at the beginning of the summer 2011.

“I think Mike will make an excellent station manager,” KCSU Local Music Director Kelsey Myers said. “I admire anyone willing to do that much work.”

The KCSU station manager has the responsibility of managing a financial budget, maintaining the station’s license with the FCC and managing heads.

“Mike is a very organized and friendly person,” Myers said. “I think she will be a great face for KCSU.”

The Rocky Mountain Collegian Wednesday elected current Photo Editor Sam Noblett as the 2011-2012 editor in chief-elect.

Noblett said his main goal is to, “continue improving the print product, as well as pushing the boundaries of what the Collegian can do with its web product.” He also wishes to better the Collegian’s storytelling skills.

“I really care about the Collegian, and I feel like I have something to add to it,” he said.

Noblett will continue to work as photo editor while he trains for the editor in chief role next semester until taking over at the end of the spring semester.

Jim Sojourner, current Collegian managing editor, said Noblett is qualified for the job.

“He cares about the individuals who work here, and he wants to see the paper grow and continue the success it has seen in past years,” he said.

Jenny Fischer, the Collegian’s creative services manager and member of the hiring committee that recommended Noblett, said the combination of his dedication to the publication and his good management sense will allow him to be a successful editor in chief.

“He has a big job in front of him and I think he can handle it,” she said.
