Jake has his bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism from Ohio University and a master's in Sport Management from West Virginia University. He is incredibly excited and honored to be a part of the team for the upcoming season.

Kyle Cornell

Kyle's had a love for sports since he was born. From football, baseball, basketball and beyond he's always had an interest in competition and respect for the game. Whether it was muting his tv to call sports games he was playing on his PlayStation, or when he started officially covering sports and doing play-by-play in 2010 when he was a junior in high school student in Parma, Ohio, one thing is for sure: Sports is his passion. He's hoping to bring a great call to the sports fans in Lorain County, something he believes they truly deserve.

He has been in the background with the sports team for a number of years providing technical support and occasionally filling in on broadcasts. Dave will bring his unique perspective and sharp humor to the field this fall as he works the sidelines as part of the WOBL broadcast team.
