Lee Ferraro, g.m. of WYEP-FM in Pittsburgh for 16 years, has announced that he will leave the station after helping its board find a successor. Ferraro told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the decision was his own and “a difficult one.”
Last year Ferraro worked with WYEP’s board and funders to purchase WDUQ-FM from Duquesne University. The station is now Essential Public Radio 90.5 FM.
Ferraro said in a press release that he plans to take some time off after leaving WYEP but that he hopes to stay involved with public radio.
