Frahm-Hingtgen Named Content and Operations Manager for WAER
Katherine Frahm-Hingtgen has been named as the new content and operations manager for WAER-FM. Frahm-Hingtgen comes to WAER from KMST public radio, operated by the University of Missouri-Rolla, where she most recently served as the station’s program director.
Like WAER, KMST programs a mix of NPR news and music content. As KMST Program Director, Frahm-Hingtgen managed all programming operations, including content selection of daily and special programs; monitored program and broadcast quality; supervised student participation; and hosted local “All Things Considered” segments.
“I am honored and excited to be part of the WAER team, who has a legacy of bringing great programming to Central New York for over 65 years. In the ever-changing world of public radio, my goal is to provide the best possible programming through multiple formats and platforms that will enlighten, engage and entertain the listeners of WAER,” she says.
“We will rely heavily on KC to execute our multi-platform content strategy,” says WAER Director and General Manager Joe Lee. “She brings a great deal of energy and fresh perspective that will help WAER engage new audiences.”
“I am constantly striving to adapt to the current trends and changes in public radio and encourage members and listeners to reach out to me with ideas and suggestions of how to improve our programming,” Frahm-Hingtgen says. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-443-3538.
Frahm-Hingtgen, a native of Owensville, Mo., received a B.A. in public relations from Hawaii Pacific University. She replaces recently retired Program Director Ron Ockert, who served WAER for 20 years.
