About CisternYard Radio
Founded in 2001, CYR is the College’s radio station. We are completely operated, produced, and managed by students. As a station, we provide listeners with diverse programming and insight into student life. DJs are overseen by four paid staff members and have the opportunity to create a weekly show based on their personal interests. The best part about CYR is that you can listen anywhere.
To learn more about our staff, check out the bios below. For more information on how to get involved, check out the “DJ” tab and take a listen here!

About the Staff
General Manager: Thomas “Kon” Robinson - firstname.lastname@example.org
Born and raised in the Empire State, and only two years removed from New York, Kon is a part-time super-villain and full time stubborn Yankee who loves shrimp and grits and refuses to use the word ‘y’all’. When he’s not working, studying, doing homework, or preparing for the zombie apocalypse, he can be found talking about music, martial arts, and anything else under the sun.
Public Relations Manager: Cayla Clarke Williams – email@example.com
Cayla Clarke likes Yorkshire Tea, the color orange, USA Swimming, and terrible reality television. Hailing from Virginia Beach, Cayla Clarke is a senior at the College of Charleston studying Spanish and Theatre. When she’s not planning events or coordinating interviews for CYR, she enjoys reading, theme parties, stalking One Direction, and slam dunking the funk. Upon graduating, Cayla plans to become a professional fangirl at Sugarscape whilst continuing her education in London.
Public Relations Assistant Manager: Meredith Wohl – firstname.lastname@example.org
Hailing from both the frozen tundra of La Crosse, Wisconsin and the accent-ridden Long Island, New York, Meredith Wohl is a freshman with the intent to double major in Political Science and History. Fascinated by the art of communication and the magical effects of a well fitted blazer, she plans on going on to law school upon graduating. Meredith loves Civil War history, frozen yogurt, music festivals, and sloths. When she’s not working, you’d likely find her reading someone’s autobiography, talking about traveling, or busting out the lyrical genius of 2 Chainz.
Programming Director: Rashad Thacker – email@example.com
A pharaoh from ancient Egypt, Rashad Thacker is known to some as the King of Games but to most as an Orientation Intern and leader on campus. When he isn’t in the office making the schedules for DJs and planning events he’s off with the Anime, Japanese, Aikido, and Table Top clubs on campus. Rashad has a deep passion for all kinds of music. His musical selection is more versatile than Elton John’s closet. In his spare time he enjoys drawing, with music at full blast, preferring to lose himself in the sounds instead of the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Technical Director: John Barry – firstname.lastname@example.org
John Barry is the local of the radio staff, hailing from Mt. Pleasant just across the waterway. A connoisseur of local and regional music, John enjoys going to see live music and performing with his band South Street. John is studying Music Theory and Arts Management at the College of Charleston and plans to become a full-time waiter after graduating. Keep an eye out for the release of his novel “The Life of a Radio Tech Director at Cistern Yard Radio” coming to a lightly used bookstore near you.
