Staci Hoste joined the stations in 2008 and is responsible for the stations' general operations and overall strategy. She’s been a lifelong listener to WNIJ and WNIU -- first as a “prisoner of public radio” in her parents' backseat, and now of her own enthusiastic accord. Her favorite shows include On the Media, This American Life, and Wait, Wait…Don't Tell Me. In addition to her role at the station, Staci serves on the board of directors for Riverfront Museum Park, Kish Health System Hospice, The University Station Alliance and the Illinois Public Broadcasting Council. When time allows she enjoys reading and working on an ongoing home restoration project.
