Joe Gunderman
Production Coordinator

Joe Gunderman

A 25-year radio veteran, Joe was a long-time Public Radio listener and member before coming to work at WKSU in June 1997. He has been OET’s “Producer of the Year” twice for WKSU, and has produced award-winning radio ads for Kent State University. Other than the day-to-day polishing of promos and prerecorded content at the station, Joe’s most notable productions for WKSU are his "Holiday Stories from The Gundie Journal" (which brought together professional writers, actors and musicians for an hour long radio special in 2004), and the three two-hour versions of “Ornaments and Icing, Songs and Stories of the Holidays” for NPR, which were honored with a Gabriel Award in 2001. Previously Joe was a commercial radio production director in Cleveland for over 9 years at the combinations Lite Rock 106.5 FM and WWWE-AM, and 106.5 and WRMR-AM. Before that he produced for WSPD-AM and WLQR-FM in Toledo. Additionally, Joe is a professional voice artist. In the spring of 2004, Joe celebrated 20 years as an AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) freelancer doing commercials and narrations that are heard all over the country. He also takes to the stage at irregular intervals, having appeared in a one-man show at Playhouse Square in the spring of 2004, at Beck Center that same year, and Dobama, Berea Summer Theater and other stages in previous years. As an avocation, he is a rather serious photographer.
