A Director of Technology Comes To Public Radio Pair


The owner and operator of Pittsburgh’s NPR Member station and its long-running Adult Alternative noncomm has appointed a Director of Technology. He’ll be charged with leading the IT and engineering staff at the organization.

Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting Corporation, parent of WYEP-FM and WESA-FM, has named Jason Price to the post.

“Jason was by far the most outstanding candidate from a broad pool,” said Chris Capato, Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting’s Vice President of Finance. “I’m certain that Jason’s knowledge, planning ability and service approach will result in his continued success.”

Price began his tenure at Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting in 2018 as IT Manager.

In other moves, Tom Hurley is being promoted to Engineer. Hurley has worked with the organization as a freelance audio engineer since 2012 and joined the staff full time as Operation and Engineering Technician in 2018.
