Cody Boston mixes film major with DJing

Recent KU film and media studies grad Cody Boston found his home and purpose at KJHK, KU’s student-run radio station. As KJHK’s Multimedia Director, Cody put the skills he learned in the classroom to work, pulling together the popular Thursday night show “Live @ KJHK.” From booking bands, to overseeing the filming, editing and sharing of the show, to hosting as DJ Boston, Cody gained a wealth of real-world work experience, perfectly complementing his studies. These are skills and experiences that he drew upon both working as a videographer for the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and during the summers of 2016 and 2017, working for Kansas City Public Television.

"KJHK has helped me with tapping into my ambition. I was put into a position of responsibility. That has really motivated me to get my stuff together. I have to meet deadlines and I have fun doing it. And I realized I am better at what I do than what I gave myself credit for."

You can learn more about Cody in this KJHK “Of the mic” interview, where he discusses his biggest fears, favorite music, the chances of him becoming a life coach, and more about his quest in life.

In February 2017, Cody hijacked the College Instagram account to show us his typical week balancing his studies and his work at KJHK.
