My name is Jake McNeal and I am a senior, majoring in news-editorial and magazine journalism, with a business minor.
If there is one thing I love, it’s sports. I figure that covering sports is the next best thing to actually playing, though my athletic dreams are anything but dashed. I never turn down a chance to play.
My favorite media form is radio, and I hope to be on it someday. In Portland I listen to Sports Radio 95.5: The Game because it’s the “home of the Blazers, Ducks and Seahawks.” The Seahawks are not my favorites, but I wish them well (Go Titans).
In high school I was a student columnist for the Beaverton Valley Times.
I keep two blogs:
Jake’s World, full of all the stuff that’s really important.
World Tour 2009, a work-in-progress account of my European adventures in the fall of last year
I’d also like to cover music and do graphic design
