Audio & Music Student Media Adviser

Hannah is our Audio & Music Student Media Adviser. 

Hannah works with 40+ radio DJs and staffers who want to broadcast fresh music, news, sports, and talk on the airwaves. She advises students on how to make their content lively, and she tries to advise my equipment not to break. The later doesn’t really work, so she also fixes different pieces of equipment around the station to keep KCSU rocking. From the microphone to our radio tower, she makes sure it all functions and sounds the best it can! In addition to KCSU, she assists our TV station and newspaper with their audio and music needs.

She was an NPR affiliate station announcer and reporter in Kansas City, Missouri until she moved to Fort Collins in August 2016 to work for Rocky Mountain Student Media Corporation. She may be from Kansas, but she still digs all things involving water such as delicious seafood, kayaking, and swimming. Hannah plays the drums and sings. I’ve played in bands since 2010 and have self-produced about a half dozen EPs. She enjoys eating oversized marshmallows dipped in good coffee.

He enjoys being lazy and watching movies.He hates the cold even though he lives in Colorado. He prefers Pepsi over Coke. He’s that person that will stop whatever he’s doing to adore a puppy walking by and he prides myself on his very average imitations of famous people.

Mimi Hibben
Local Director

Mimi is our Music Director. Mimi is Majoring in JMC with a minor in Music Production. Mimi plans on graduating in 2018. 

KCSU takes pride in providing listeners with a diverse sound. So, Danny and Mimi are given the wonderful task of ensuring that we keep the music selection at the station so fresh (and so clean). With the collaboration of our musical minds, they are able to kick-ass at 5 things as the two KCSU Music Directors. Ready? 1. Being open to and accepting all music sent to us 2. CD reviews 3. Attending concerts when really she should be studying 4. More CD reviews 5. Emails. Emails. Emails. I know it sound repetitive, but she love what she does. With that being said, if you ever see an extremely tall blonde dude wearing cut-offs and an expressive metal t-shirt, or a much shorter, brunette, lady trotting around campus listening to Salt-N-Peppa, feel free to pull them aside. They don’t bite, they just wanna hound you about your music taste.

Mimi is a vegan. And she listens to excessive amounts of rap music. Yep, you read that right.

You can take girl out of the hood, but you can’t take the hood out of the girl. #vegansdoitbetter

He also makes sure that these underwriting spots are being played by DJs by keeping logs so that they can play these spots at their designated times.

“I’d say I am a cross between a young Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford, but most of the time people think I am Elvis. I went to the thrift store today and the lady called me Elvis.There’s also another lady who works there who calls me the same thing. I think I go to the thrift store too much if it I am known by their staff as Elvis. I guess that’s an accomplishment: a usual at a thrift store.

It’s probably because I stand out due to the clothes I wear. I hate the word “vintage,” but that’s the best way to describe what I wear. I prefer the term: “classic.” I like my shirts with big collars and my pants that taper out into bells. I like all of my jackets. I wish that clothing now was like back then or else I would wear the new clothing. If big collars aren’t the next big come back then I am Elvis.

I have a very dry sense of humor and I sometimes like being intimidating. Most people think I have my life together because I present myself well and the way I dress. I think that could be true since I am a major in a field that most people don’t think gets any revenue. Jokes on them: graphic design is the only art career I am guaranteed any living… Unless I suck at what I do.” -Trevor Lombardi

Oscar as a child was raised by wolves.

But he got his good looks from his mom and dad, and ancestors. He loves music, its a way to escape from reality and lose yourself in the beats and rhymes written between the pen and paper. If you couldn’t guess, he is  a hip-hop connoisseur; but more importantly, he loves baby-making music, A.K.A R&B.

He lifts weights like a horse, and sleeps like a tranquilized one too.
