KWMU GM Ousted After Review
June 3, 2008 at 7:03 AM (PT)
Longtime UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-ST. LOUIS noncommercial Talk KWMU/ST. LOUIS GM PATRICIA WENTE has been fired after the school's general counsel office reviewed management and financial practices at the station, according to the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.
WENTE had been with KWMU for almost 20 years. The review followed an outside audit last year by MARBERRY, MILLER AND BALES that uncovered problems with records for the credit card issued for FRIENDS OF KWMU, the nonprofit that raises financial support for the station.
Sister KBIA/COLUMBIA, MO GM MIKE DUNN will assume WENTE's duties on an interim basis.
