Online media discussion to electrify Twin Ports radio, heat up sexy demo

I’ll be back at the University of Wisconsin-Superior Friday to appear on Final Edition on 91.3 KUWS, an affiliate of Wisconsin Public Radio. I worked for KUWS in both my undergraduate and graduate college years, first as a news reporter and later as operations manager.

Fun fact: KUWS used to be some kind of study area for the deaf (blind?) on the UWS campus and is the only radio station I’ve ever worked at with no windows to the outside. This station was relying on computers and the internet for obviously observable information long before its competitors. But I kid, and digress.

Final Edition is a show about news and journalism, featuring reporters, writers and media types talking about major stories and the craft. It’s usually a lively, fun, informative program, until I get there and add one additional adjective: incendiary! (insidious?) Our show at 5 p.m. Friday, heard at 91.3 FM in the Twin Ports or online at, will feature host Mike Simonson, the news director and mentor I worked for back in the day, and guests talking about regional blogging and online news. I’m told one guest is launching a new site for online news in northern Wisconsin , surely to put my little operation here to shame. Nevertheless, we’ll be exploring new media in the Northland, a topic close to my heart.

Final Edition airs at 5 p.m. Friday on 91.3 KUWS.

    Mike Simonson taught my broadcasting class. I was terrible at it, but he always gave me good grades. He was a good guy.

    Also, I was in his class the morning of 9/11 and he dismissed us so he could get on the radio. Those memories are linked for life.
