Broadcaster, Avid Sports fan, Lover of all music.


My name is Christopher Hayden McAteer, I’m a Communication major with a double concentration in broadcasting and journalism at Western Carolina University. I will be the first man in my family to graduate from college.

I was a student assistant for Westerns football team. I was a student worker for Catamount athletics setting up cameras and other broadcasting equipment for games, I also filmed games for football and basketball. I have a radio show called “the Night Train” on WWCUFM Power 90.5 Monday nights from 10 till midnight.

People have told me that I am a hardworking, dedicated person who doesn’t give up on anything. My career goal is to be a radio show host or to be a sports commentator. My dad told me something when I was very young and it has stuck with me ever since, “you can go as far as your will takes you”. That means that only you can say how good you can be. Keep working hard and you will get where you want to go.
