MURFREESBORO — An MTSU graduate who hangs out with a fast crowd will be the next guest on “MTSU On the Record” on radio station WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Skyye Medley, a production manager assistant for ESPN’s NASCAR coverage team, will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, and from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25.

Medley, a native of Pleasant View, Tenn., performs multiple tasks as the NASCAR television production truck travels from race to race. They include logistical planning, coordinating interview times with other networks and seeing that producers and announcers have what they need for the broadcasts.

In addition to NASCAR, Medley has worked the Liberty Bowl, the Music City Bowl, the Winter X Games and NFL Monday Night Football.

Medley has a bachelor’s degree in electronic media journalism with an emphasis in television and radio and a master’s degree in media management, both from MTSU.
