Mason Wang is a Broadcast Copy Editor. This is his third year on staff. If you’re reading through staff bios right now, you must be really bored. Since nobody will read this, I like attaching a toilet paper roll and pretending to be a unicorn. Besides that, I like technology, debate, and cosmic encounter the board game.
