Dan Peltier, class of 2014, was recently hired full-time at Skift after completing a summer internship there. Skift offers news and services to travelers and travel industry professionals.
Jonathan Perry, class of 1987, launched a music, memoir, and pop culture blog/story archive, "RPM: Life In Analog," where he writes and posts frequently about music, vinyl records (and record collectors), and some of the hundreds of artists and bands he's interviewed and covered for The Globe (where he launched its weekly "Scene & Heard" local music column). For more than 15 years, he has been working as a music journalist, columnist and critic for print and online publications such as Rolling Stone, CMJ New Music Network, The Boston Phoenix, and The Boston Globe. Jonathan spent his college years writing for The Amherst Bulletin, Daily Hampshire Gazette, and of course, The Collegian. After winning a New Jersey Press Association First Place Award for Critical Writing in the Arts for a few pieces he wrote while moonlighting from his regular beat as The Trenton Times' City Hall reporter, Jonathan decided it was a divine sign and turned to writing about music full-time. 2015 marks his 20th anniversary of taking the freelance plunge to live his dream of writing about, and listening to, music morning, noon, and night.
Rachel Perry-Gore, class of 2018, is an agent at New York Life Insurance in Boston and operates mainly in the Greater Boston area as well as the South Shore. Perry-Gore graduated with a double major in legal studies and journalism.
Danny Picard, class of 2007, started in January 2009 "a radio gig at Boston's Talk Variety WBNW 1120 AM, hosting a sports talk show 5 nights a week from 6-8 p.m... it's slowly become a success. A month ago, the station had me replace CNN's Lou Dobbs in the drive-time slot from 4-6 p.m. (Dobbs was nationally syndicated through the station). So that's where I stand. I'm currently the host of Boston's newest drive-time sports talk show called "I'm Just Sayin" weeknights from 4-6 on WBNW 1120 AM (Boston), WPLM 1390 AM (Plymouth), WESO 970 AM (Southbridge), and worldwide on YouCastr.com. My regular guest list includes most of The Boston Globe's sports writers, NESN.com writers, and other local sports talent. We've even been talking about possibly extending my show from 2-6 p.m. everyday. In March, I received a national honor of sorts: TALKERS Magazine's Frontier Fifty: A selection of outstanding talk media webcasters. Even though I use local radio as my primary output, it's a pretty special list to be on, with guys like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Dave Ramsey, etc.
