Eighteen years at WBAA! Where has the time gone? I worked here as a Program Host/Producer from 1995 to 2001, hosting classical music, Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and the weekly 20th-century classical music series “The Kostraba Conundrum.” After a short stint as Program Director at a public radio station in Kansas, I moved with my family to Toledo to serve as Classical Music Director at WGTE-FM, staying for seven years. One of my highlights there was winning the 2007 Ohio Public Broadcasting Award for "Radio Producer of the Year" for my monthly in-studio performance program “Live From FM 91” and special programs celebrating the lives and music of composers William Grant Still and Samuel Adler. As much as I loved northwest Ohio, it was a joy to return home to Greater Lafayette in 2009 as Program Director (now Content Director) of this remarkable station: freshening our sound, developing the WBAA Arts Spotlight, hosting Afternoon Classics, and in general deepening our relationships with the arts community.
