Ohio University pubcaster WOUB is welcoming a journalism professor as its interim director and g.m., as part of a push to integrate the college with the station in Athens, Ohio. Tom Hodson served as the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism’s director from 2003 to 2010. He is replacing outgoing Director and General Manager Carolyn Bailey Lewis, who will retire this month. The station is a nonacademic unit of the college and broadcasts PBS and NPR content as well as student-produced programming to Southeast Ohio and neighboring states. It’s run by student volunteers and full-time technical employees and editors.
