Walt Gander

Walt came to WXPR as a features producer in 1990.  In 1995 he assumed management of operations.  With considerable engineering help, Walt has shepherded the station through three satellite distribution technology changes and two unattended/ live-assist automation system implementations.  Walt was integral - from conception and design, to completion - of the major studios move to 28 North Stevens Street accomplished in 2012.  Walt currently oversees operations and engineering, and is a regular Morning Edition host and producer.  He spends his spare time at the transmitter site 'laying-hands' on the equipment there "because he can."
