Austin Hough, a sophomore pre-journalism student at the University of Missouri, has a dream of one day becoming a sports broadcaster and journalist. To get one step closer, Hough has dedicated a large portion of his time to working at MUTV, the student-run campus television station. Because of his dedication, he has become one of seven sports executives and hosts his own show called “Triple Play, a sports-dominated game show.

When he isn’t studying or sleeping, Hough is constantly refining and perfecting his show. “I take a lot of pride in working at MUTV. It’s a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I’m probably going to end up staying late again tonight.”

Granted, this level of dedication has it’s downfalls, but Hough is not shaken in pursuing his journalistic dreams. “It’s a lot of hard work, and a lot of the executives have lost a lot of sleep, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything.”
