Dave Mattingly, '86, credits Radford University and RU radio station, WVRU, for his success in broadcasting. Mattingly is a morning news anchor for National Public Radio.
"I was heavily involved with WVRU. I was a news anchor and writer for three years and news director for two," says Mattingly. WVRU Radio's advisor, Ted McKosky, helped to educate and influence Mattingly in his career choice. "Ted gave us the hands on experience that we needed. He coached us to success and by the time we graduated, we were prepared for the real world," says Mattingly.
