Hey everyone, my name is Hunter Burin and I am the podcast chair for this year. I run the PR Hangover podcast in which we talk about anything and everything PR and PRSSA related. I have a guest on every show so I hope to be able to record a podcast with many of you this year. If this sounds interesting to you, then feel free to talk to me about being on an episode!
I am currently in my junior year of school in the honors college here at Grand Valley and this will be my second year as a PRSSA member. I’m majoring in Advertising and Public Relations and have minors in Business and Digital Studies. In addition to running the PR Hangover podcast, I’ve been involved in a lot of other organizations here at GV. I’ve hosted many radio shows on The Whale, our student run radio station. This year, I am an account associate at GrandPR, the best student-run Public Relations firm this side of the Mississippi. Also, I work at the Einstein Bros Bagels on campus, so feel free to stop in when I’m working to get all your bagel cravings satisfied.
I was born in Michigan, lived here for a week, then moved to Massachusetts and lived there until I was 8. My family moved back to the east side of Michigan in 2005 and they lived there until I moved off to school in 2015. Currently, they have moved to Shanghai for five years for my dad’s job with Ford. I have had the pleasure of visiting them these past two summers and the cultural experiences I had were truly life-changing. Other than talking to my parents when we can work around the twelve hour time difference, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and I’m a huge fan of music. I have an ever-growing record collection so if any of you are collectors I’d love to talk music with you.
This will be an amazing year of PRSSA and I am so excited to meet all of you. Hopefully, we will be able to record a podcast together or simply build a professional connection with one another. If you have any questions, feel free to email or talk to me or anyone else on the e-board, we will all be extremely happy to help!
