MISSOURI UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY noncommercial KMST/ROLLA, MO GM and "SOUNDS ECLECTIC" host JIM SIGLER is retiring from the GM post after 25 years with the station. History Professor Emeritus and show host Dr. WAYNE BLEDSOE has replaced SIGLER as GM.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed my 25 years with KMST, as both a producer and general manager, and I'm looking forward to getting back to my first love of radio: serving as producer/host of 'SOUNDS ECLECTIC' and producing features for our listeners and perhaps for other small-market stations," said SIGLER.
"As KMST wraps up another successful fundraising drive, I'm very thankful to JIM for his leadership and dedication to the station, especially during these challenging economic times," added Chancellor Dr. JOHN F. CARNEY III. "Throughout his tenure JIM has emphasized the importance of connecting with listeners and station members to deliver the music they love and the information they need. Public radio KMST is an important outreach for MISSOURI S&T."
