New DJ takes to air on KSYM

 Michelle Marin has a secret identity at KSYM 90.1-FM radio. But the secret is out. Weekday mornings she is “T.A.” and co-hosts with Hot Mustard on The Sauce, which airs from 7 to 9 a.m.

It is a new gig for the 31-year-old Radio TV Film major. After years of working for a San Antonio bank, Marin enrolled at SAC to study Human Resources. Two semesters later, she had a change of heart and majors and moved to Radio-TV.

“I like doing the technical side,” Marin said. She enjoys working behind the camera for TV production and only just got in front of the microphone on the radio when the semester began on January 22.

A native of San Antonio she is in her third semester as an RTF student and hopes to graduate in December. As co-host of The Sauce she does traffic and weather and chats with Hot Mustard (aka James Velten) on air. It was Velten who coined her DJ name after the two had a class together.

T.A. stands for Totally Awesome. Her enthusiasm for radio is as infectious as her giggle. Marin admits working on the show has expanded her musical knowledge.

“I didn’t realize we had so many San Antonio bands that played the blues,” she says. “I like the show we are in. It is a good morning show.”

On Thursday mornings SAC President Dr. Robert Zeigler joins the duo at 7:30 a.m. for a 30-minute show called “Speaking of SAC.” Marin says she has learned a lot about the college and likes that she can comment on the discussions from a student perspective. “I was a little nervous the first time I met Dr. Zeigler,” she admits.

Marin’s favorite local news is Fox News First on KABB. She likes the chemistry between Ernie Zuniga, Monica Taylor and Shaun Stevens. She is also a big fan of Robin Roberts, the “Good Morning America” female anchor who she calls “inspiring.”
Her favorite radio station is KISS 99.5.

What would KSYM listeners be surprised to learn about Marin? 

“That I work at a church,” she says. Her full time job is as secretary at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church and she also sings in the choir.

Next up for Marin is her first KSYM Pledge Drive in March.

She hopes to transfer to a university and get her bachelor’s before pursuing a full time job in media production. “You have to go and follow your dream,” she says.
