Max Selby is a co-founder of WXOX 97.1 and WXND 100.9 FM. These noncommercial radio stations located in Louisville, Kentucky, open the airwaves to community members for creative and experimental use. A high school student, Max designed the WXOX Next Wave Radio Academy, a radio training ground that prepares other teenagers for a life in radio. At the Academy, students learn the FCC rules and technical skills they need to become professional broadcasters. Outside of the radio world, Max is an avid student that enjoys music, art, lacrosse, and skating.
