Stephan Weed

Sports Emphasis Student/THE Columbus State CC

 

Stephan was born in Fort Myers Florida but at age 7 moved and grew up in North Carolina. Don’t get it confused, there is no love for Duke or UNC. Outside of school, playing in local recreation leagues for basketball, baseball, soccer, and swimming were his hobbies. While growing up, he found his true love to be football. Stephan played 3 years in high school but was never serious enough to make that next leap. Always fascinated with broadcasting since he was 12, he was an avid ESPN watcher, mostly Colin Cowherd. After graduating high school, he spent two years in Raleigh before ultimately deciding to ‘take his talents’ to Columbus, Ohio for a change of scenery! He then attended Columbus State Community College and would graduate in December of 2016 with a Sports Management degree. Instead of pursuing a career in the field, he graduated in, he decided to go into sales.  He has been working in the mortgage industry since January of 2018 with Lower, formally known as Homeside Financial, in New Albany. Working in the mortgage industry has its benefits but it still was not exactly how Stephan imagined he would be spending his career.
     While working, he came across an ad for Ohio Media School and decided to take the leap into the broadcasting. He fell in love during the tour and could not wait to get started on his new path. With zero prior experience, this seemed like a new challenge to him that he wanted to take head-on. He is excited to have the potential to follow his dream of covering football and all sports. His main passion is with the National Football league and as a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and occasional Browns fan, he saw this as an opportunity he never could have again. His plans for post-graduation from Ohio Media School consist of being able to run a full-fledge football show, with other sports and gambling lines sprinkled in.

Wally Lukachinsky

Sports Emphasis Student/THE Ohio State Graduate

 

Wally was born in Akron, but moved to the Pittsburgh area before he was a year old. He considers himself a proud “Yinzer” and is a diehard Penguins and Pirates fan, but somehow his wires crossed at a young age and he became an Oakland Raaaaaaiders fan.  Growing up Wally’s other hobbies included movies and tornadoes, he often dreamed of storm chasing in the spring and summer months before he’d come home to play professional football in the fall and winter months. Seeing that 5 foot 9 men weighing in the high 200lb range don’t have a high demand regrettably, Wally had to re envision his future. 

He went to THE Ohio State University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Sports Industry and then went on to float around in sales for a short time. Wally’s long term plans had been to become a sports talk personality since he was in high school, but he wasn’t quite sure how to turn them into reality. He stumbled across Ohio Media school online and within 24 hours was enrolled. His passion has always been for sports; and this program has him excited for the opportunities that will present themselves in the near future.

Tyler also dabbles in video editing, photography, and does lots of traveling. While taking mini-vacations, he has gone near and far, covering Crew SC from the Pacific Northwest to Orlando, Florida. Many opportunities have come across his way, including being featured on multiple podcasts and radio shows. 

 

In the future, Tyler hopes to achieve his dream of being a content creator or Social Media Coordinator for a professional sports team. If it's not here in Ohio, his dream landing spot would either be Portland or Florida.
