Officers & e-board

station manager/Co-Founder: Arden Antes

My name is Arden Braiden Antes.

I am a senior studying Media and Communications here at Johnson & Wales University.

I am the Station Manager for JWU Live and co-founder of the station. I am also a DJ hosting a show called 90’s Appreciation. It’s filled with great 90’s music and memories.

One thing I find about myself is that music and collecting tons of it has always been one of my biggest passions. I’ve always went out and bought albums on records and CDs! I have a very large collection of old records. Some of great value, I feel like the collection really strengthens my music interest and experience. I hope to keep them for as long as I possibly can. I am eager to help and meet anybody with similar interests and questions about us and the station!

Personnel Director- andrew luciano

Aloha! My name is Andrew Luciano, and I’m from New Jersey, I’m the training director for JWU Live radio. I’m a junior studying Tourism & Hospitality Management.

I’m gonna be bringing you all your classic rock needs, from Janis Joplin to Led Zeppelin. I’ve always had a passion for music and fascination at the power of it. Music is a thread that passes through all cultures. It unites us as human beings, regardless of race, age, or religion. It’s a truly immeasurable force for good in this world, and I am happy to be passing on some positive vibes to my fellow human beings through music.

Interesting fact: In high school I was writing music for a band. We got pretty popular and we opened for The All-American Rejects and The Maine in New Jersey and New York.

Marketing director - wills holley

Hello everyone! My name is Wills Holley.

I am a Senior studying Business Administration and I’m from Long Island, New York.

Many of you have probably seen me around campus because I work for the Admissions Events here at JWU Providence and I also assist with giving daily tours! When I’m not working as a student assistant I plan and host events as the President of Hall Council for The Cove (2 years running). After (and before) my presidential obligations, I help operate JWU Live’s social media as one of its Marketing Director. Don’t worry though, I sleep part-time!

One thing that I love to do is play video games (100% Xbox fan) and also watch NASCAR on the weekends. The reason I keep myself busy is because I have a huge passion for marketing and brand management and I hope that my accomplishments so far will help me master my career within the field of marketing. If you want to get to know me stop me on campus some time and say hi! (Except for when I’m on tour). You can also email me at See you around!

Hello Wildcats! My name is James Amaral and I am one of the co-founders for JWU Live. I would like to take this time to thank you for your support! I founded JWU Live on the premise that it would one day be not only a form of entertainment but a mouthpiece for the Johnson & Wales community.

A little about me? I am a senior Media & Communications Studies major here at JWU. I grew up listening to country music (Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, among others).
I started my own radio show on Troy City Radio in Fall River, MA. when I was 16 and it ran weekly for 3 years. I love all sorts of music but my heart is in country. Follow me on Twitter @SomeDudeJames
