Four Quarters is a sports talk show airing every Wednesday night on KCO2 from 10 p.m. until midnight. The show involves four rotating hosts, consisting of freshman Evan Lachnit, Anthony Romano, Joey Schneider and Jacob Seus. These four Missouri School of Journalism undergraduates will debate four different sports topics relevant to each week, aiming to make the best sense of contemporary news for college and professional sports in four quarter segments. The show includes brief pregame, halftime and overtime segments to cover recent sporting news, and encourages its viewers to be involved by tweeting or calling in questions for discussion. With two hosts from St. Louis and two from New York, the show is able to provide interesting analysis that allows people to appreciate sports and form opinions of their own.
Joey Schneider is a freshman journalism student at University of Missouri. Schneider graduated from Pattonville High School in 2014, where he served as Editor-In-Chief for the Pirate Press newspaper in his final year. In his first two semesters with KCOU, the St. Louis native has called games for Mizzou soccer, women’s basketball and club hockey. Schneider has been able to embrace his large passion for sports journalism through other opportunities with MUTV and Redbird Rants. Schneider’s favorite professional sports teams include his hometown St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues and St. Louis Rams, in addition to the Indianapolis Colts. He hopes to eventually work his way up to a journalism position with one of the four clubs in the future.
I am Evan Lachnit from St. Louis, Mo. I graduated from Oakville High School and am a freshman here at the University of Missouri and am a journalism major. I will be pursuing a career in convergence sports journalism. I am a very out going persona and avid sports fan and admirer. I live for sports and follow almost any sport imaginable.
In high school, I was the Sports editor of the school newspaper “The Prowl” and was in charge of all things sports for the paper and online website. I also served as second in charge behind the EIC. I also did work on the schools broadcast as a reporter and anchor and covered mostly sports. All of that gave me experience as I headed to college. Along with working here at KCOU and Kcou.fm, I am a staffer for Mizzou’s student led TV station MUTV.
My name is Jacob Seus and I’m a freshman at Missouri from Long Island, New York. I’m a journalism major pursuing my career as sports broadcaster. In high school I was the vice editor and chief of my schools paper. I am an active member of KCOU and MUTV as I continue to improve and work towards achieving my goals.
