Seeking Classical Broadcasters 
Q: I am a listener, why are you inviting me to be a broadcaster?!  

A: Most of our broadcasters were listeners before they were broadcasters! 

 “I have listened to WMNR since its inception as a classical music station in 1982. As a lifelong classical music devotee, I particularly responded to the tastes of some of the broadcasters who I knew got to choose their programs and strayed from the usual top 50 format of other stations. As I faced retirement as a practicing physician, I was looking to pursue something else besides medicine to keep my mind active. I called Kurt and asked if he had an opening. Indeed he did. It has been a great experience. The staff is friendly and supportive. I have learned to be passable on-air; it was a struggle at first. I have had to learn broadcasting technology at the station and new applications of my home computers to download musical material, edit it and sometimes record it...ALL GOOD! Best of all, I have had to listen to a lot of wonderful new music in order to build programs with variety. If you enjoy classical music, the opportunity to share it with others shouldn't be missed.”

WMNR Behind-the-Scenes Videos

To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, WMNR Fine Arts Radio produced a video featuring 27 broadcasters and staff. The piece is a loving tribute with an inside look at the people who make up the station. Produced by WMNR’s own H. William Stine, with Associate Producer Megan Stine.  After Bill and Megan produced the Anniversary video, they teamed up again for a slightly less serious, but completely accurate, look at our broadcasters.  To view the videos, click the picture.
