Zane is a Journalism and Media Communications major with a focus in radio and digital media.

Though this is his final year with the station, Zane hopes to leave a lasting impact on both the staff and listeners of FM89.
A native of Sugar Grove, IL, Austin Paulson grew up glued to television & radio of the Chicagoland area, listening to the likes of Jonathon Brandmeier, Jonathon Hood, Len Kasper, and Svengoolie. He took his fascination with broadcasting down south where he spent some time at Western Kentucky University and worked at local television and radio stations. During the pandemic, Austin returned home to attend North Central College where he’s currently pursuing a degree in Journalism & Media Communication. When Austin isn’t at a show downtown or in the stands of Soldier Field, you can catch him hosting a variety of shows on FM89 each week including Fringe Radio, Local Chaos, Music Telephone, and Vocal Distortion.
