Denise Carpenter

Programming Traffic Coordinator/Underwriting Assistant

Denise is WUOT's programming traffic coordinator/underwriting assistant. She began her career at WUOT in 1972 as music librarian, after having attended the University of Tennessee and working at the station as a student assistant. Currently, Denise helps maintain WUOT's website; publishes the station's monthly e-newsletter E-Notes, and assists in the station's traffic/operations and underwriting departments.

Denise relaxes with paper crafting, hiking and tent camping, reading and birding. She is the servant to Lily, a recently-adopted (7//18) tiny tabby kitty; a blind, hearing-impaired and darling Shih Tzu, Sophie; and the extremely shy but oh-so-sweet Max, a rescue pooch from Myrtle Beach.

Ways to Connect

It’s Pet Pledge Day! Today is a day to honor your furry friends while supporting the station you care about. But wait, there’s more!

If WUOT receives 350 pledges by phone, online or in person by 8 p.m. tonight, Frankie and Sunny will donate $1 for every pledge received and one pound of food to the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley!  That’s $350 for WUOT and 350 pounds of food for shelter animals! These public radio pooches are getting a little help from their friend, Mike, to make this challenge possible.

  Saturday, April 5, is the last day of WUOT's 2014 Spring Fund Drive. Saturday features one of our most popular programs, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, and if you donate by 8 p.m., you’ll have the chance to see one of the show’s most hysterical panelists, Pop Tart Princess Paula Poundstone!

Donate Saturday, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to Paula’s show at the Bijou Theatre on July 26!  We have three pairs of tickets, so you have three chances to win!

 We hope you'll tune in on Thanksgiving Day for these special programs:

10:00 a.m.: Thanksgiving with Cantus - Cantus, one of the premiere men’s vocal ensembles, and program host Alison Young, talk about the holiday, music and food.
