Tom McGonagle is the current Commercial Director at YSTV. He is also known for producing shows such as YSTV Does Taskmaster, York Consulting Conference amongst other programmes. Tom is part of a new wave of freshers who had never experienced the 20th century; something many members are still coming to terms with.

Presenting

McGonagle is well known for one of his many catchphrases, 'I'd like to present' among many variations. Despite his more current emphasis being on producing, directing and vision mixing shows, he's still keen to present pretty much everything! Tom has done the pilot to Riddle Me This, as well as appearing regularly on YSTV Sport. It is arguably through his efforts to present that he became involved in various areas of production.

Head of Lighting

Sub-teams became a thing in 2018-19 leading to the emergence of the infamous Sound Team, Camera Team, Tape Team and then Lighting Team. As the only person who actually knows how to use the YSTV lighting desk, Tom asked the Tech Directeor and Station Director if he could have the unofficial title, leading to him becoming "Head of Lighting".

Commercial Director

Entering the role through a March 2019 by-election, Tom has started organising commercial conference shoots and merch orders. A recent focus has been organizing sponsorship for Roses 2019.

URY

As YSTV started engaging with URY more in 2019, Tom started to present TV on the Radio. As well as this, he joined Sam Hance to make their radio show 'If You've Heard This, It's Already Too Late'.
