During her 30-year career in public radio, Regina has pretty much “seen and done it all!” From news reporting to fundraising to administration, there’s not much that goes on at WUOT that she hasn’t done. She fell in love with public radio while still in high school and has been involved with public radio at the local, regional and national levels ever since.
Regina says she is proud of the excellent service WUOT provides this community and lucky to come to work every day surrounded by talented and dedicated staff members who love what they do and are darn good at it. Even after all these years in public broadcasting, she can’t think of anything she’d rather be doing!
Melony calls the beautiful mountains of Boone, N.C., home, although she was born near Greensboro, N.C. There’s just something about those Blue Ridge Mountains that got in her blood and never left after she moved there to attend Appalachian State University (ASU). While at ASU, she majored in piano performance and music therapy and began to cultivate a love for accompanying and for collaborating with other musicians. This soon led her to earn a master’s degree in collaborative piano at the University of Tennessee, which she attended from 2006-2008.
