Mathes Named GM Of Noncomm KUOW
University of Washington's KUOW/Seattle will have a new GM as of January 2, as Caryn Mathes moves over from NPR affiliate WAMU/Washington, DC. WAMU's contributor base rose 58 percent under Mathes' leadership.
"We are thrilled to have a public radio executive of Caryn’s talent and abilities coming to the station, the UW, and our community to lead this wonderful public radio enterprise,” said Norm Arkans, UW's associate vice president of media relations and communications. "She has had great success wherever she has been and brings a fresh perspective and genuine passion for the role of public media in our society. Seattle and all of Puget Sound just got to be an even better place than it already is."
Mathes said, "KUOW is poised to be a leader in public media's next chapters on audience, content, and technology, and I know we will do great things in this regard."
