PROGRAM DIRECTOR: Donte Buchan
What’s good? My name is Donté Buchanan aka WavyDonte, and I am finishing up my senior year at SFSU. I’ll keep it short & sweet. I do not tolerate ANY Drake slander. I listen to a wide variety of music, from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers to Future. I take an unnatural amount of cat-naps, I’m on the debate team, and I have an everlasting attraction to tacos and mimosas on Sunday’s. I also spend way too much time on SoundCloud.

I also have a clothing brand “Cam’s Collection”, that i’m still building. I will also release a podcast with my brother Corbin. For some reason I run into a lot of famous people in public places. I workout, draw, turn up, play video games, read books, love going on adventures and I’m a film fanatic. If you ever see me on campus say “whats up”. Don’t be shy, I don’t bite unless you’re into that kind of thing.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER: Tyler McKinney
I was originally born in Long Beach, California which explains my gangsta-ways LOL I’ve always wished I was twin, that would be pretty cool! I’ve loved artists such as Tyrese, Tank, 112, Avant and Jaheim since I was too young to know what their songs were about. I’d blast their music from my boom box while cutting pictures of Chris Brown out of magazines, stapling them to my wall. I love to eat, get my nails done, watch movies, take baths, wear heels, and shop in the sale section. My biggest career goal is to do everything. I aspire to do on-camera work, but I wouldn’t mind writing editorials, producing television shows or reporting the news. I will not say no to a job, let’s just put it that way.
