Cristy MeinersStation Manager
A lifelong lover of the arts, Cristy Meiners got into journalism because she hoped she’d be able to read books, go to concerts and watch movies for work; surprisingly, she’s pulled off just that for much of her career. After spending nearly 10 years as an arts producer, first in Washington DC for NPR, then with SiriusXM's The Bob Edwards Show and Bob Edwards Weekend, Cristy returned to Utah to work as the arts and entertainment editor at the Deseret News before coming to KUER, where she now serves as general manager.
KUER’s reporters, producers, editors, hosts and illustrator took home seven first-place awards, eight second-place, four third-place and an Honorable Mention for their work ranging from the politics podcast “State Street” to best use of sound.
Ogden listening session panelists brought no shortage of exciting ideas to share with KUER at the fourth gathering of its listening tour.
At the third listening tour event, panelists and leaders began to correlate coverages ideas that have been percolating.
Our second listening tour event in Ogden was a conversation that leaned into 'strategic imagination.'
If there was one thing KUER’s Ogden Listening Tour panelists emphasized at our inaugural meeting on Feb. 1, it’s that there is not simply one Ogden.
