“Beth’s keen sense of understanding of our community and deep well of experience overseeing station programming, including producing successful series with New Orleans favorites such as the Marsalis family, Louis Armstrong, Preservation Hall, and Chefs Paul Prudhomme and John Besh, not to mention community partnerships with the National WWII Museum, the Ashé Cultural Arts Center and others, made it abundantly clear that she was the right choice for this role. She will be a “Guardian of the Groove” in the truest possible way”, said Deborah Harkins, President of WWOZ’s board.
Beth Arroyo Utterback responded: "I am thrilled to be entrusted with this incredible opportunity to lead WWOZ as we expand our mission to be the worldwide voice, archive, and flag-bearer of New Orleans culture and musical heritage. The world loves WWOZ, one of the top 5 radio stations in the country or, if you believed Andy Warhol as I do, the very best*. I leave WYES in good hands after many wonderful years, and I can’t wait to immerse myself in the culture of WWOZ and its first class team.”
