KUT On The Move: Susan Castle
Construction of the new KUT Public Media Studios at The Belo Center for New Media is well underway and on schedule for an early summer completion. Even though no one really likes the idea of moving, we have to say that the KUT staff is very excited about moving into our brand new home. The new digs include a 72-seat, glass-walled Studio 1-A, two control rooms, a community engagement room, a street-level outdoor stage overlooking a performance lawn, and a producer commons that will bring together – for the first time – KUT’s newsroom, on-air hosts, music producers, online producers and interns to collaborate.
One of those KUT folks that will be packing up and moving across the street this summer is Susan Castle. Susan has been with the KUT music department for a little over two years, which makes her almost a babe in the woods by KUT standards (John Aielli, Jay Trachtenberg, Jeff McCord, Ed Miller, etc.). Susan holds down the “castle/fort” Monday nights from 8-11pm along with Sunday mornings from 6-11am where she’s already become a listener favorite. She also regularly fills in for Jay, John, Jeff and Matt Reilly during KUT’s music programming.
