Central Vermont Community Radio hired Llu Mulvaney-Stanak as station manager of WGDR/WGDH, the CVCR board announced Tuesday.
“Llu’s extensive experience in both the nonprofit and radio world is a unique combination that’s rare to find, and one that will serve our listeners well as we start another new chapter in WGDR’s long history,” Mark Michaelis, chair of the CVCR board, said in a press release. “We couldn’t be more excited about WGDR’s future with Llu at the helm!”
The community broadcaster owns WGDR in Plainfield and WGDH in Hardwick. Goddard College ran the stations for nearly 50 years before giving their licenses to the nonprofit CVCR in May.
Mulvaney-Stanak got their start in radio on WGDR/WGDH as a teenager in the ’90s. They have been on the air for nearly 30 years, including hosting a new music show on a commercial station for a decade. They also helped start WBTV-LP, a low-power community radio station in Burlington.
“I am deeply grateful to WGDR/WGDH for sparking a love of radio in me at such a young age and I’m honored to help the station establish itself as community-owned,” Mulvaney-Stanak said in a press release. “I’m excited by the possibilities for future programming and community engagement through the station.”
