Todd Steed

Director of Music, Host, Producer

A Knoxville native, Todd began working at WUOT in 2006 as jazz coordinator. His role has expanded to include operations, fill-in host of All Things Considered, and host of Studio 865/Flipside and Changing Course. Todd got his start in radio at WUTK, where he served as music director while earning his undergraduate degree in journalism at UT. He later earned a master’s degree in education, also at UT.

Prior to working at WUOT, Todd worked overseas in China, Lithuania and Indonesia. Upon returning to the states, he was a study abroad coordinator at UT's Center for International Education. He claims he is also a musician. 

WUOT is excited to announce our new Afternoon Concert host,  Ace Edewards.

His music studies have brought him to Le Centre d’Études Supèrieures de Musique et Dance in Toulouse, France; the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, in Glasgow, Scotland; and the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music. In December of 2015, Ace received his doctoral degree in orchestral conducting from the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona.
