CASEY KASTEN - ACCOUNT MANAGER
After graduating from the Reynolds School of Journalism at UNR with a B.A. in Integrated Marketing Communications I started my career in Master Control with KRXI/KAME in Reno, NV. I would go on from there to the Traffic Department, eventually becoming Traffic Manager for the Shamrock Communications radio cluster in Reno.

Not stopping there I transitioned into sales, specifically in the Hospitality Industry. I served as Sales Manager for hotel properties in both Carson City and Reno. My next stop was as Director of Sales and Events with ASM Global, a worldwide leader in venue management, working onsite for local landmarks such as the Reno-Sparks Convention Center and the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center. Now it is my pleasure to join the SOSU.TV team as Account Manager.
