Dr. Denny Woytek

Born in Erie, Pennsylvania on May 24, 1949. Lived most of my childhood on the beaches of Presque Isle and ‘spinning the hits’ at radio stations including the one I built in my basement. The broadcast range was only a few blocks but I kept the neighbors entertained. I had my first paying radio job at WJET.

In 1967 I joined the Navy to be a photographer in 1967 only to find myself as a Seabee going to Vietnam. After serving in Quang Tri and Dong Ha with CBMU 301 and building an Armed Forces Radio station in Quang Tri, I was transferred to Alaska. I spent three years in the frozen tundra of Adak Island at AFRTS as a disc jockey, program director, TV newscaster and movie host.

After discharge from the Navy I returned to Erie to work on radio and attended Mercyhurst College. I left college to take a full-time position at a 5,000-watt radio station as the wild-and-wacky morning announcer. I lived three years in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan near Mackinac Island. Moved back to Pennsylvania and spent 13 years as a morning man in Franklin, PA.

Moved to Pittsburgh in 1989 and I was a freelance Videographer, TV producer. I returned to finish my Bachelors degree in Communications at Duquesne in 1995. I worked at WDUQ as a part-time host for jazz, I completed my MS in Multimedia Technology at Duquesne. In February 2009 I completed my Ph.D. in Rhetoric with a dissertation on how Vietnam veterans are using technology to take private memory and make it public.

I was an Assistant Professor for the Journalism Multimedia Technology Department at Duquesne University and taught courses including Introduction to Multimedia Technology, Cross-Platform Authoring, Digital Imaging, Multimedia Production, Digital Videography, Photojournalism, Visual Communications, Digital Cinematography, Photojournalism, 3-D Modeling and Animation and Computer Graphic Design. I retired from Duquesne in 2016.

I have won 12 Telly Awards, one for a program called “Pennsylvania Adventures”, “A Journey of Faith” a documentary on the town and people of Medjugorje, a documentary on the visit of the Pope John Paul to the United States. I also was awarded Tellys for documentaries on John Gibson of the Negro baseball league, “We are All Immigrants”, “The Seabees Return to Vietnam”, also awarded a Pixie Award for animation.

I continue enjoying photography and my radio roots playing the music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s
