Program & Music Director
Elizabeth started her radio career as the “Astrology Lady” on her high school radio station in 1973. She helped to build WJFF in Jeffersonville, NY- the first completely hydro-powered radio station in the U.S. in the early 90’s. She has been with KMUN since 1995. Her daughter Alia was KMUN’s first radio baby!
Mass communications and marketing have been in Susan’s blood since college days when she hosted a radio show in Nevada, MO. Being at Coast Community Radio uses all of Susan’s skills and contacts in a way that she feels gives back to the community. Welcome home, Susan.
Graham Nystrom is a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy. As a guitarist and pianist, making music is his primary passion, but the technological side of the music industry has been his trade since 2003. Starting out as a live sound and recording engineer for bands and venues, he eventually turned on to broadcast radio as TD for Live Wire Radio and Oregon Public Broadcasting. Nowadays, he couldn’t be happier lending his broad range of skills and experience to Coast Community Radio.
Terry grew up in Long Beach and Ilwaco, Washington, then spent seven years in the US Coast Guard as an electronics technician, followed by four years in Navy Aviation as RADAR operator. He has much radio and some television broadcasting experience: with KLSN and KXA in Seattle as a classical DJ; with KGHO in Hoquiam as program director and DJ; and many other stations in the Northwest, adorned with titles like Transmitter Engineer, Audio Engineer, and Assistant News and Sports Director. Terry returned to his native coastal stomping grounds in 2000 with his wife of 29 years, Barbara, and joined Coast Community Radio in 2002.
Morning Edition Host/Volunteer Coordinator
Kate joined the staff this year, after months of substituting on the morning news. She brings many years of experience into the volunteer coordinator position as well.
Membership Services/Office Manager
I’ve been involved on and off at Coast Community Radio as a volunteer since 1986. I have spent most of my programming hours late at night playing a varity of esoteric tunes and artists. Shift workers and insomniacs have been my most loyal audience. Though the programmers are the backbone of Coast Community Radio, it takes even more than
a dedicated roster of volunteer programmers to operate a successful community radio station. Community support is critical. Members are treasured.
Some of my tasks here at CCR will be mundane workaday kinds of endeavors. The most exciting aspect of my job is maintenance of the membership database. I see this as not only keeping the database up to speed from an accounting point of view, but as an opportunity to engage and interact with our members.
