WUOT’s news department is looking to become an indispensable source of timely, accurate, in-depth information for a curious audience.

The host will also serve occasional turns on Dialogue, WUOT’s award-winning midday public affairs program. And they will get to join in the fun in WUOT’s fundraising and outreach efforts, being an ambassador for the station and for public radio in this community.
