What's new at WMUK

Stephen Williams will replace WMUK's retiring general manager Gordon Bolar starting July 1st. Since 2011, Williams has served as the general manager for WESM, a public radio station in Princess Anne, Maryland. The station is in collaboration with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Much like WMUK, WESM has a mix of news and music programming. 

WMUK is celebrating 65 years of service to our region, and Bell's is throwing the party! Come celebrate turning 65 with us at Bell's Brewery in downtown Kalamazoo on Wednesday May 18th.

The three finalists for the WMUK general manager position are Anders Dahlberg, Klay Woodworth, and Stephen Williams. All of the finalists will do public presentations. 

Business reporter and Arts & More co-producer Robbie Feinberg has accepted a new job as a reporter with a new education reporting initiative at the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

Feinberg grew up in New Hampshire and got started in radio through the Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Before coming to WMUK, Feinberg wrote feature stories for "City Pages," an alt-weekly newspaper covering Minneapolis and St. Paul.
