Jennie Caissie Bates
Jennie joined WUOT as the membership coordinator in February 2014. As membership coordinator, she oversees all aspects of WUOT’s membership program and activities including maintaining and providing analysis of the membership database, tracking membership revenue, conducting comprehensive on-air and mail membership campaigns, organizing special events, recruiting and supervising over 300 WUOT volunteers, and much more.
Jennie received her Master of Public Administration from the University of Tennessee in Environmental Policy Analysis and brings with her 10 years of experience working with government and nonprofit organizations. Jennie fell in love with noncommercial radio after working as the development director for WDVX-FM Knoxville, and is very excited to join the WUOT team.
When Jennie is not at the station you will find her volunteering for several organizations around Knoxville, attending local bluegrass and Americana music shows and festivals, and lounging with her two boys, Devyn and Ryan, as well as her Morkie, Audrey Hepburn. She also writes a monthly column for Blank newspaper.
