Haleigh DeverStudio Coordinator
Haleigh graduated from the Specs Howard School of Media Arts in 2011 with a certification in Radio. After that, she interned around Michigan for about a year with their two major rock radio stations (89X & WRIF) before packing up and moving to West Virginia to be on-air in 2013. There, Haleigh hosted a nightly show on a small market active rock station, which led to her conducting band interviews at Rock On the Range here in Columbus. This drew the attention of local rock station 99.7 The Blitz and brought Haleigh to Columbus full-time in 2014. After three and a half years there hosting the nightly rock, local and metal shows, she left to focus on the other side of the industry. Haleigh booked talent for a mid-size concert venue called Skully’s before finding her home here at School of Rock in August of 2018.
