KACU ready for revamp with introduction of new directors and managerPosted October 30, 2013
ACU’s own 89.7 KACU-FM is proud to announce that Nathan Gibbs has joined the station as general manager and director of broadcast operations.
Gibbs ('00) worked at KACU as a student before graduating with a B.S. in electronic media. He subsequently earned an M.F.A. in electronic arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y.
While in New York, Gibbs hosted a radio program at WRPI, then moved to San Diego, Calif., to work as a media production specialist. He recently concluded nine years as an interactive product specialist for KPBS.
“Nathan's tremendous broadcasting skills and his professional experience in a major market will help him to take a cutting edge approach toward KACU,” says Dr. Cheryl Bacon, chair of ACU's Department of Journalism and Mass Communication.
“Nathan brings a lot of exciting ideas," adds Meagan Freeman, KACU director of news and operations since August. "People around Abilene and on campus may think we’re simply a small radio station operating in a corner of the Don Morris building, but with Nathan's experience and talent, I know we'll be able to extend KACU's reach and broaden its impact on our community."
