Kenneth “Kenny” Ayers says he chose to attend West Chester University because, “The opportunities that can come from attending WCU are incredible. This school is filled with friendly professors and student leaders who only want students to succeed. I like the opportunity to get involved. I wanted to gain experience that I might not have gotten elsewhere.”
At West Chester, Kenny is involved in many different campus
clubs and organizations. He has a sports talk radio show on the campus radio station WCUR, he is a play-by play announcer for both the hockey and baseball teams, and, for the second year in a row, he is editor-in-chief for the student newspaper The Quad.
Kenny aspires to be a baseball broadcaster. He has spent the last two baseball seasons as a broadcast/media relations intern with the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. That experience earned him the 2013 Harry Kalas award from the Philadelphia Broadcasters Foundation. He says, “All that I have worked for over the last three or so years culminated in winning that award.”
He has received numerous awards in communications. He is the 2013 recipient of Mary K. Anderson Media Award, the 2013 recipient of the West Chester University Roger and Diane Casagrande Scholarship, and the 2013 recipient of a Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia scholarship.
