On Wednesday, September 7, one of our retired KUT colleagues, Leo (Leonora) Siedo passed away. Leo held a variety of roles at the station and was part of the senior management team for a number of years. A graduate of Austin High School, she went on to attend the University of Texas at Austin.
While still in school, she started working part time for KUT in 1966, and in 1971 became a Senior Clerk. Over her 30 years, she become a Manager and one of the first Assistant Directors at the station. She was one of the steady hands during a difficult period of Director transitions in the late 90s.
