Hey everyone,My name is Claire Gysegem…I’m 18 years old and I’m a broadcasting major with a television concentration here at Point Park.I’ve been a member of PJ since the first semester of my freshman year, and I’ve had my show since September.
My show is called the Tuning Peg. It’s from 10pm to 12am on Tuesdays. I play classic hits from the late fifties to the mid eighties…and I try to play a lot of songs that have revolutionized pop culture or influenced the music we hear today.
I play a lot of international music, as well. You’ll hear some bossa nova and early French works…and I have various other recordings of Indian and African artists.
I would want to be deserted on a stranded island with Macgyver. Hah!
At the moment, anyone I feel brings something unique to the table, i like. I’ve been listening to a lot of Patrick Cleandenim and Zach Condon. I also never get tired of The Strokes, Todd Rundgren, and Simply Red. Anyone who puts art and soul into their work and it’s not just some manufactured commercial.
I am involved with U-View and The Cavalcade.
I would love to start off field reporting and then eventually end up behind the desk…and work my way up into a top 25 market where I would anchor and direct. Preferably somewhere along the east coast…but I’ll make my bed wherever! I have to have chocolate at least once a day…my favorite show is Keeping Up Appearances…and I will forever have Youngstown Pride!
