Christina Stoffo, a familiar voice to radio listeners in New York and New Jersey, led a workshop on the evening of January 22 for 21 students at WSOU 89.5 FM, the renowned radio station at Seton Hall University. Stoffo, a Seton Hall graduate and former staff member of WSOU, worked with students on how to best deliver live traffic reports and connect with listeners. She has nearly 15 years of on-air experience in the New York market.
Stoffo works for Total Traffic & Weather Networks and is currently heard regularly on Z100, KTU, Q104.3, Power 105, NJ 101.5, 105.7 The Hawk, 94.3 The Point, and WDHA. She has previously appeared as a traffic reporter on FOX 5 in New York and was heard on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio. Her visit to back to her alma mater was arranged by WSOU News Director Bob Towey and is the first in a series of talks and workshops by industry professionals that will take place throughout the spring semester.
“One of the amazing things about WSOU is that it provides students like me the opportunity to learn from people who have been successful in the media industry,” said junior Julie DeVoti. “I am eager to apply the tips she gave us to improve how I sound on the air and share traffic information with our listeners.”
