I have twenty years of public service in television, radio and digital content at Wisconsin Public Television and Radio, Lehigh Valley PBS, WTTW Chicago and WBEZ Chicago. I specialize in operations, media programming, digital content production, direction & distribution including podcasts, community building, branding, social media best practices and managing operations staff, content creators and producers.
Since June 2011, I am the Director of Content & Programming at Essential Public Media Inc’s 90.5 WESA FM and WESA.fm in Pittsburgh, PA.
90.5 WESA is a new NPR news station that launched in July of 2011. I helped build this new organization from a jazz and news combo-university-owned license to the independent full-time news station it is today. I was hired three weeks before the switch and we had no permanent General Manager at the launch. I have gained boatloads of experience and knowledge in the last four years as we have expanded and I am happy to serve as a consultant for any organization in transition.
The opportunities for our content are limitless. We know we produce the best news and stories - just look at the iTunes top podcast list anytime - most are pubmedia offerings. And that's not even mentioning Serial. I want to help propel us forward faster and seize the moment.
Give me a shout; let's talk.
