One thought on “WUNC GM Connie Walker dies at 59

  1. I am greatly saddened by Connie Walker’s premature death. I admired her and her many outstanding accomplishments. However, one line that rings hollow in this story and elsewhere is the comment that prior to Connie’s tenure, the station was “struggling” and “not the successful, respected radio station we have today.” WUNC has long been a nationally-admired public radio station in an area that is very supportive of public radio. Yes, Connie contributed much and helped to “right” a financially-overextended station. But to suggest that prior to Connie, the station was weak and/or a failure … besmirches the reputation of many fine leaders who preceded her.
