Mike joined WUOT in March 1998. He is the station’s chief engineer and IT person. Mike installs, maintains and repairs all of the equipment at the radio station and WUOT’s two transmitter sites. He handles the purchasing and installation of the station’s computers and servers as well as maintains them and the station’s audio streams.
