Station Manager
   Graham Nystrom
   graham (at) coastradio (dot) org
As a guitarist and pianist, making music is one of Graham’s primary passions, 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 to broadcast radio as Technical Director for Live Wire Radio and Oregon Public Broadcasting.  Now, he couldn’t be happier offering his skills and experience to Coast Community Radio.

Program Director
   Emily Geddes
   emily (at) coastradio (dot) org
Emily’s musical background led her to volunteer as a programmer at KMUN in 2018. She now brings this affinity, along with experience in community organizing, non-profit work, marketing and design, to her work as Program Director. When not juggling the schedule or proofing copy for air, you can often find her in the studio spilling ink on her clothes or sewing pieces of fabric together.


Development Director
    Susan Peterson
    susan (at) coastradio (dot) org
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.

Janet is relatively new to Astoria but not to non-profit work. She has a background in development, event production, database management, bookstore ownership, customer service and tech support. Through it all, she’s maintained a passion for books, music, animals and community. She started with us as a volunteer librarian and is thrilled to now be in the role of showering Coast Community Radio members and volunteers with gratitude and support.

   Joanne Rideout
