WKSU announces the retirement of award-winning reporter/producer Vivian Goodman on Oct. 31. During her two decades with the station, Vivian has been a classical music host, a news anchor and a reporter focusing on the arts and, more recently, Northeast Ohio’s expanding food culture with the weekly “Quick Bites” feature. Other stand-out work has been Goodman’s multiple trips covering the Cleveland Orchestra on international tours, the “Mean Kids” series on bullying and several pieces on race relations in Northeast Ohio.

Following a national search, Wendy Turner has been selected to serve as the new executive director and general manager of WKSU, Kent State University’s award-winning NPR-affiliated radio station. Turner currently serves as vice president of digital and technical operations at Chicago Public Media. She will begin her new role at WKSU on Oct. 31, 2016.
