First up we were sad to learn during the June meeting of our Media Center Commission that Tammy Schmieden was resigning her board post effective immediately. Tammy has been serving on the commission for nearly ten years, much of that time as chairperson. We wish Tammy all of the best and remind her that our meetings are open to the public, so anytime she wants to come by, she is always welcome! We are happy to welcome current board member Steve Sabatke as chairperson and current radio producer Caprise Waak (“GRRL-Powered Radio” and “Play Anything”) to the board.

Also we are set to welcome in July Colin Lessig as the newest member of the SPMC staff. Colin will be the new SPMC Production Manager focusing largely on 103.5 FM The Sun Community Radio. Colin comes to us from UW-Platteville, where he has spent nearly a decade as an instructor. He has also worked with kids of all ages and hosted a radio program for most of his time in college. Welcome Colin!
