Jay Phatak (12) is Broadcast Manager for The Voice, running the podcast in his second year working for the newspaper. Since he already has too much writing to do as a senior, he would like to edit podcast episodes rather than articles. When he has free time, he likes to beat people at chess, or take photos of the cute hummingbirds that come to his patio.
