Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Matt Weisbecker and I specialize in a variety of media types including Audio Production, Graphic Design and Photography. Currently, I am enrolled at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and am a senior in the Communication/Journalism department. I am also the web director at The Slate, our campus newspaper.
My experience with media started out in college, as I really had no clue what I wanted to do once I got to Shippensburg. In high school, I always was set on becoming an engineer, but eventually I decided that wasn't for me, so I moved on. I joined WSYC my sophomore year, with my first show being Movie Mornings: a one hour show where I talked about movie news, box office numbers and more. Despite not knowing much about radio and also being a nervous reck on-air, I stuck with it. To this day I still love it, and I wouldn't be where I am today without WSYC.
In addition to radio, I have also worked in online media, including graphic design, video production, website design and photography. My work at The Slate mostly includes website optimization and uploading news stories, but I also look for creative ways to innovate and improve on what is already great in when it comes to digital media.
Hobbies of mine include quite a bit of gaming, movie watching and music listening (on vinyl of course). I also love to travel whenever possible, as seeing new parts of the world is really exciting to me. In May and June of 2017, I traveled to Europe with some other students and staff at Shippensburg University, which is what really kickstarted my love for traveling.
