From Disc Jockey to Operations Manager…now Part-Owner, Will still wears a lot of hats (mainly to protect that head) but he loves all of them! Will helped start MTD in its current form in 1999 and gave 3 of the four stations their call letters. He’s worked for different Broadcast Companies in multiple markets in the region including Ruidoso, Alamogordo, Roswell, Hobbs and Lubbock, but has consistently come back to his MTD Home. “I feel extremely blessed to do what I love, every day with the best people on the planet!” – Will Rooney
