Wesley Kempton

An extraordinarily proud New England native, I was born in Northern Vermont and raised in a small border town called Franklin which boasts more cows than people and and exceptional views of foliage and Canada. At the encouragement of my father (an alum), I came to Laramie in 2007 hoping to become a Sports Journalist but quickly changed my mind and decided that I preferred talking over writing.  Thus, I graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2011 with a degree in Communication. During my years at the University of Wyoming, I played a semi-mediocre role in the long-awaited rebirth of the UW Student Radio Station, serving as the station's first Sports Director and hosting a morning sports-talk show called 'Sorry To Wake You.' Frequently heard but rarely seen, I have been the Public Address Announcer for almost every sports team at the University of Wyoming and have announced a number of miscellaneous events (sports and otherwise) throughout the Laramie and UW community. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Loryn and my dog June.  I enjoy playing almost any sport the Laramie weather allows, spontaneous trivia competitions and all music that sounds good.  I fight regularly to defend the honor of the Boston Red Sox; I cheer for the San Antonio Spurs almost entirely because of my admiration for David Robinson; my favorite sports writers are John Feinstein and Rick Reilly; my favorite band is Barenaked Ladies.
