I’m sorry to report that Sean Rameswaram, KUSP’s host of Marketplace, All Things Considered, and Fresh Air, has left our staff to return to the east coast. In addition to hosting the afternoon news line-up Sean was our “go-to” reporter, especially on environmental stories, and in recent months he has been the producer and host of Talk of the Bay. He leaves really large shoes to fill, and all of us at KUSP wish him well.
For now, the afternoon host on KUSP will be Wes Sims, and we’re happy to have him back. Wes was the regular Friday host of Talk of the Bay for a period of time, before leaving our area a few years ago to serve as News Director of BYU Broadcasting, which includes public broadcasting stations KBYU FM and TV, in Provo, Utah. Wes recently retired from that position and returned home to the Monterey Bay area. We’re very happy he’s able to step in for a few weeks while we organize a open hiring process for Sean’s successor.
