KMUW has hired a new news director, and we're happy to welcome Aileen LeBlanc to the KMUW staff.
Aileen is a public media veteran with more than 30 years in the industry.
She comes to KMUW after working as a documentary film producer for three years. And before that, as the news director at WYSO, a public radio station in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
On the heels of her 68th pledge drive, KMUW’s member services coordinator Pat Hayes was honored with the WSU President’s Distinguished Service Award.
Her first day was Nov. 13, 1978 and has been with KMUW ever since.
Frank Dudgeon interviewed Pat about her history with the station and how things have changed throughout the years.
