Hey everyone! My name is Morgan Mclaughlin and I’m a third-year majoring in International Business and Marketing, and I’m also getting my minor in Electronic Media.

Gavin Beegan: Programming Director

Hey y’all, my name is Gavin Beegan and I’m the Programming (Radio) director. I’m a third-year chemical engineer on a pre-med track and a minor in Spanish. I got involved in Bearcast early on at UC due to my love of music and my die-hard obsession with all things ’80s. That and Brendan Mitchell (former BTV Director) dragged me to the first meeting. When I heard I could run a radio show I just about lost it, and I now run the show The Variety Trio as DJ “Hazy Cosmic”. Feel free to get in touch with all questions about radio or Bearcast in general, peace out!
