Meet the Managers

Andrew White

General Manager

Senior

Major – Journalism and Economics

Hometown – Roxbury, NJ

What’s Poppin’ Squires, my name is Andrew White and I am the General Manager of WQAQ 98.1 FM. I have been a part of this station for the past 3 years and I have loved every second of it. I work with multiple co-hosts on a sports’ show/podcast called QU Hot Takes (Wednesday’s at 7 pm…Shameless Plug). I was also previously the Show Programming Manager where I mainly scheduled shows for the semester and worked side-by-side with the General Manager.
Now that I have this new role, I am so excited to see the evolution of this station. Many organizations are not as lucky as us to continue moving forward throughout COVID-19, so I look forward to having new people join the station with new music and new opinions and new ideas. This is a perfect year to step out of your comfort zone and create your own show about anything and everything.
WQAQ will be a tight family and I want to start that trend by saying I’m very easy to contact, and I want to connect with everyone.

I am from a small town in Upstate New York and I study marketing and PR at Quinnipiac in the 4+1 BS/MBA program. I host to one of WQAQ’s most popular shows, “The Country Hour” and have interviewed some of Nashville’s biggest stars. I am an avid concert-goer and have seen country artists from Alan Jackson and George Strait to Eric Church and Cody Johnson, live.

During my time leading the music department, I hope to get members more involved and encourage members to make the department their own and to help decide which direction it and the station will take in the future.

My name is Jon Surratt. I will be the Web Manager for the 2019-2020 school year. I am very involved outside of WQAQ, as I am a beat reporter for Q30TV and do calls for QBSN. As well, I am always working out or playing basketball, so if I am not in class, catch me at the gym.

My goals this year is to make WQAQ have the best website it’s ever had. I want the website to look the best and be very easy to navigate through. I also want to be able to show off our radio host’s as well as I can. If you have any ideas on how to make the website better as well, contact me.
