Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting Corporation has appointed WYEP Station Manager Mike Sauter to the role of Vice President of Broadcasting.
In his new role, Sauter adds duties with NPR News sister station WESA. He has been with the station for 17 years.
“WYEP and WESA share a common goal: to be leaders in the service they provide in music and journalism, respectively. We’re thrilled to take this next important step for our organization, by placing Mike at the helm of our broadcast operations and programming,” said Terry O’Reilly, president and CEO of Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting.
Added Sauter, “While I have a deep love for the music that WYEP plays every day, I have also, always been a voracious news consumer and thusly, have great respect for what my colleagues at 90.5 WESA bring to the Pittsburgh region. I’m excited to have an opportunity to work with all of the producers and show hosts at Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting to make sure we’re serving the needs of the very passionate listeners of both WYEP and WESA.”
Sauter joined Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting as program director for 91.3 WYEP in 2004 and was promoted to station manager in 2019. Prior to WYEP, Sauter logged time at WHTG-FM/Asbury Park in New Jersey.
Last week, WYEP elevated Liz Felix to Program Director.
