What's new at WMUK

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.

WMU University Relations

This personal appreciation of Glen Bishop and his pivotal role in the history of WMUK was written by former station manager Garrard Macleod, who knew him well.

"Glen Bishop died peacefully at his home in Kalamazoo this past weekend at the age of 84. Glen served Western Michigan University and WMUK brilliantly and faithfully for 45 years. He retired in 1995 as Associate Director of the Division of Academic Services. But his true love at the University was its public radio station, WMUK.
