During his time at Monmouth University, Hunter Farman, ’17, was very active with The X. He was a national finalist for a Best On-Air Personality Award, and got to interview some of the biggest names in the business.
Since graduating, Farman went on to work with 107.1 The Boss in Neptune, NJ. He was able to seamlessly continue his college radio career directly into the professional arena upon graduation.
“I would not be there today had it not been for everything that I did during my time here at The X. People thought I was crazy for waking up two or three times a week at 5:30 a.m. to go live for X and breakfast at 6 a.m. People thought I was crazy for being on-air three, four, five, six times a week. But I did it because I love it, and I did it because I’m serious about pursuing it. I don’t know what the future holds, but for now, my experiences with The X have paid off,” he added.
Farman’s advice to current Monmouth students is to make the most of their time in the program.
“If you really want to do this, you need to put in the time, and you need to put in the effort,” Farman added.
