KURT WALLACE will join ANDERSON UNIVERSITY Contemporary Christian WQME (98.7)/ANDERSON-INDIANAPOLIS as the new Content Manager and morning show host, replacing the departing MATT RUST. RUST will be serving in a new role beginning JULY 1st as Exec. Dir. of the ANDERSON/MADISON COUNTY VISITORS BUREAU.
ANDERSON UNIVERSITY Department of Communication & Design Chair REBECCA FULLER BEELER says, "MATT RUST has been such an integral part of our operations at WQME. For 16 years, he's been the voice of mornings and has been out in the community representing our station. We're going to miss having him around the station fulltime, but I'm so glad he'll still be in the community and a friend to WQME and ANDERSON UNIVERSITY."
WALLACE got his start in radio at GREENVILLE COLLEGE, and his career has included radio stops in ST. LOUIS, BATON ROUGE, ATLANTA, CINCINNATI and INDIANAPOLIS. He serves as the station voice for multiple Christian radio stations across the country and also as host of the nationally syndicated WEEKEND TOP 20 COUNTDOWN.
WALLACE commented, "I'm honored to take the baton from MATT RUST, who's been a community leader and so influential in the lives of the students who have been a part of WQME during his 16 years here."
BEELER added, "I am so excited KURT WALLACE has joined our team on mornings and as our content manager. KURT has a wealth of experience in contemporary Christian radio and a heart for students. He sees the potential in WQME and how we can continue to serve the community and the University."
