DJ Spotlight of the Week | Ella Kovacs


Impact’s new DJ Spotlight of the Week is Ella Kovacs! Ella is one of our most dedicated DJ’s with three different air times. When she’s not on the air, she’s studying Art History and enjoys drawing and painting.

1. What made you decide to join Impact and become a DJ?

I was a journalism major when I started at MSU and had a real passion for broadcasting, and it felt like the right place for me to be.

2. What has been your best on air experience?

My best on-air experiences are when someone calls to request a song and then I can shout them out before I play it. I love talking about people I know are listening!

3. How do you think working in radio will affect your future career and life experience?

Working in radio has made me a better communicator, and has made me better at quick thinking, quick comebacks, and being able to quickly find something clever to say about almost any situation. Has also made me better (or worse?) at puns.

4. What is your favorite part of the station?

My favorite part of the station is how much it feels like a family, we each do our part and and are all individually so important to the overall operation. We have a lot of love for what we do and for each other!

5. If you could play an artist non-stop on the air, which would it be?

If I could play any artist non-stop on the air it would be Modest Mouse. I love them so much and each of their albums have such a unique sound that I could never get tired of them!

6. What is the best concert experience you have had? Why?

The best concert experience I’ve ever had was my first time seeing Tigers Jaw. It was at the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids which is my favorite venue, I was surrounded by my favorite people, and everyone there was so into it and we are all so connected by our love for the band. They never fail to put on an incredible and emotional show and I feel such a personal connection to them and it’s so special to see them live!!

Our next DJ Spotlight of the Week will be released on 10/31!
