John Zech

WNIU Classical Music Host

John got started in broadcasting as a news anchor at his high school's closed-circuit television station, and then at St. Olaf College in Minnesota.  After a dozen years doing virtually everything there was to do at a small public radio station, John crossed over into the private sector, doing audio production and narration for a major educational publishing company, managing translation projects for an international communications company, and generally learning what it's like to work for a living.  Having seen the light, John returned to radio in 1992.  After deciding his zen garden was too much of a headache, John looks for enlightenment on the tennis court and the billiard table instead.
