Ele Ellis
Program Director

Ele Ellis

Ele Ellis has joined the WKSU staff as the station’s program director. She will be responsible for managing the sound of WKSU’s broadcast content, including the primary signal and the HD Radio all news and all classical channels. Ellis comes to Northeast Ohio from WUGA in Athens, Georgia, where she also served as program director.

 

A native of Nashville, Tenn., Ellis began her public radio career as a host at WNCW in Spindale, N. Carolina, where she eventually became Program Director. While at WNCW, Ellis hosted the bluegrass program “Goin’ Across the Mountain.” She moved from North Carolina to take the position of Associate General Manager/Director of Programming at Boise State Radio in Boise, Idaho.

 

WKSU Executive Director Dan Skinner says, “We feel very fortunate to have Ele on board to help lead the station into an undiscovered public radio future. Her knowledge of programming – including news, classical music and even folk music – and her obvious love of public radio makes her an ideal fit for WKSU.”
