Michael Sholes is a senior broadcasting major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who knows what he wants to do.

“I’ve always been interested in sports broadcasting,” Sholes said, who hopes to someday be the voice behind his beloved teams.

That, he said, or go to law school.

But with both options open, Sholes recognizes his poise behind a microphone.

“It doesn’t faze me really,” he said.

And for good reason. For the past eight years Sholes has worked as a DJ host for KBRB – a radio station in his hometown of Ainsworth, Neb.

When he’s not announcing sports or broadcasting the weather though, Sholes said he enjoys playing his guitar and cheering for the Red Sox.
