Ann VerWiebe

Communication Specialist

Ann followed a circuitous path to the WKSU Marketing and Public Relations Department that involved a decade working in professional costume shops and a master’s degree in Arts Administration from The University of Akron. Her duties at WKSU since joining the staff in 1998 include writing and editing E-Notes (the station's national award-winning email newsletter), various print newsletters and articles, and numerous press releases.  She also coordinates WKSU's social media efforts, creates online content and writes newsletters and press releases for and the Kent State Folk Festival. Ann also enjoys working with the newsroom on awards submissions and earning prizes for the deserving WKSU staff.

Among these awards are several prizes Ann picked up for press release and email newsletter writing from Ohio Professional Writers, Inc. and that organization's parent, the National Federation of Press Women. You might recognize from her booth duty at events such as EarthFest, the Cleveland International Film Festival and WKSU nights with many local arts organizations, or from the sales table at the Kent State Folk Festival. Ann lives out the single woman cliché by driving a sensible Honda Fit and insisting on putting her cats' names on her holiday cards. Along with being an active Unitarian-Universalist, her interests include sewing, reading, gardening and shopping.

She came to WKSU in 1995 as assistant director of development in charge of fundraising and membership-related communications and special events planning.

NPR asked Ari Shapiro, one of the hosts of All Things Considered, about his media habits: what – and who – captures his attention.

Thank you to everyone who turned out to Happy Days Lodge to celebrate Garrison Keillor's tenure as host of A Prairie Home Companion! It was great meeting you and sharing this special event in the beauty of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Several people requested recipes for the treats provided before the show. We have recipes below for the granola bites and the spicy nuts. If you would like one of the many recipes left in the recipe exchange, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope and we will mail three random recipe cards to you!
