Media KUOW Update

While KUOW program director Jeff Hansen was on vacation last week, program staff held a series of staff meetings to discuss Ken Vincent’s recent resignation and the changes at the station, which include an attempt to streamline and depersonalize the on-air style.
Hansen was the main reason for Vincent’s abrupt departure.
Hansen is still on vacation, but came in today for a staff meeting. At the meeting, staffers presented him with a bullet-point list of issues related to the changes and related to Hansen’s management style: “What is the rationale for the changes?” “Why isn’t Hansen being be more collaborative?”
Hansen didn’t have time to respond to the questions, but he has the list.
