Non-Comm Radio Vet Dori Zori Named Assistant Program Director At 88Nine Radio Milwaukee (WYMS-FM 88.9)
Zori Will Also Continue to Host 88Nine’s Weekday Morning Show
Zori will also continue to host the station’s 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. weekday morning show, which she has helmed since 2012.
“Dori’s 20-plus years in non-commercial radio makes her the perfect fit for the role,” Program Director Jordan Lee said. “Dori will also lead some new and exciting programming plans that are in the works at Radio Milwaukee.”
Zori joined 88Nine in August 2012, when she began co-hosting and eventually hosting the morning show. Before coming to Radio Milwaukee, Zori was a DJ on WMSE-FM (91.7) from 1990 to 2012 and the station’s underwriting director from 2008 to 2012.
“Being part of a community-powered radio station has been my passion for as long as I can remember,” Zori said. “From my early days at WMSE to my work now at 88Nine, I’ve been able to give back to my city by working hard to highlight the local bands, businesses and organizations that make Milwaukee a dynamic place to live. I’m so excited to become a stronger voice at 88Nine to help shape not only the future of the station but our next generation of broadcasters.”
Radio Milwaukee also announced it is seeking applicants for the position of afternoon drive host / promotions coordinator. Details at https://radiomilwaukee.org/about-us/radio-jobs-internships/afternoon-drive-host-promotions-coordinator/. Applications are due Tuesday.
