Debbie Hamlett was named executive director and GM of WCMU Public Media in Mount Pleasant, Mich.
Hamlett succeeds Jim Rademaker, who left the station in July to become GM for WGVU Public Media.
“This is an exciting time for WCMU,” said Rick Westover, WCMU’s interim GM and director of radio, in a news release. “[Hamlett] is a community-focused team builder with a track record of harnessing the power of public media. Together we will continue to positively impact the lives of our audience and communities of service across central and northern Michigan.”
Hamlett most recently worked for Nebraska Public Media as executive director of the station’s foundation and also as assistant GM and chief strategy officer. She joined Nebraska Public Media in 2014.
Before that, she held development roles with the University of South Carolina, Illinois Public Media and South Carolina ETV.
“I’m excited to build on their excellent work serving communities and bringing trusted information and local content to central and northern Michigan,” Hamlett said in the release.
