Station Executive Director Mary Louise Mussoline said the Radio Station would retain its current format, an eclectic Indie Rock blend that includes hourly spins of Milwaukee music and short-form community stories.
Mussoline said Keefe’s accomplishments included instituting the Radio Station ‘s “Studio Milwaukee” performance broadcasts, developing a “Studio Milwaukee” CD series and revamping the morning show.
“Mark was responsible for significantly improving our programming and format, bringing more energetic, professional and appealing elements to the Radio Station ’s sound,” Mussoline said. “We greatly appreciate Mark’s work to make RadioMilwaukee a stronger Radio Station and wish him the best.”
