This week, we hear from another Arkansas State University student about the university’s involvement in saving the American Red Wolf.  The Red Wolf is an endangered species and is also the mascot for Arkansas State University.  A student organization has been formed called Red Wolves for Red Wolves.  The student president of the club is Shayn Goodling.  In an interview condudcted over the summer, he tells KASU News Director Johnathan Reaves why he was part of the group.  He will give an update on this fall's activities in a few weeks on the Create@State podcast.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.  

Johnathan Reaves is the News Director for KASU Public Radio. As part of an Air Force Family, he moved to Arkansas from Minot, North Dakota in 1986. He was first bitten by the radio bug after he graduated from Gosnell High School in 1992. While working on his undergraduate degree, he worked at KOSE, a small 1,000 watt AM commercial station in Osceola, Arkansas. Upon graduation from Arkansas State University in 1996 with a degree in Radio-Television Broadcast News, he decided that he wanted to stay in radio news. He moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas and worked for East Arkansas Broadcasters as news director and was there for 16 years.
