Lilja Waliewski :: Operations Manager What's up WLTL nation I'm Lilja the operations manager here at WLTL, some people call me by Lil J and there is a story for that. Freshman year I was sitting eating my delicious yogurt when this guy who would call me Lil J stood up in front of the whole lunch period and screamed, "LIL J I love you" and handed me a rose. Purest moment of freshman career. some fun facts is that my favorite foods are humus and falafel. The best restaurant to go around the Lagrange area is Seven Gates, chefs kiss. Fun fact I didn't talk until I was four, and now I can't stop talking. Unpopular opinion in the station, there aren't a lot of good la croix flavors, like there is only one or two and that is it. sorry about it. I am a Taurus rising leo, sun in taurus, and moon in sagittarius. If I were to say who the king and queen of WLTL would be, it would be Josh and Keely definitely. My go to starbucks order would be Shaken Espresso and my spirit potato would have to be Waffle Fries. I have the tendency to break into dance anytime any place. I enjoy watching thunderstorms and sleeping to raining sounds. I am in fact a girl boss and will continue to serve the station, and WLTL is music where everything else is just radio :)

Alex Karan :: Engineering Director I am currently WLTL's Director Of Engineering, working the controls to keep the station on air; doing the dirty work.

It's a great thing, and I can't wait to get more people involved with WLTL. I also obsess over bands. Peace.
