Joel Meyer

Station Manager

Joel joined KUER in 2018, following a westward journey from Chicago that involved a 14-year-old Chevy and a 17-year-old cat. (The car broke down. The cat survived.) As the station’s program director, he focused on KUER’s program schedule, promotional strategy and content development, including the recent reboot of the marquee program RadioWest and the launch of Preach, a joint podcast venture with PRX and CPB.

In his new role as station manager, Joel oversees all programming, operations, promotion and audience development at KUER. He also proudly serves on the board of Public Radio Program Directors Association.

Joel has spent most of his career producing talk and on-demand programming for WNYC Studios, WBEZ Chicago and Slate, including podcasts like Making Oprah, Making Obama, and American Fiasco, as well as the eclectic music program show Soundcheck. A native of public radio mecca Minneapolis, Joel is a graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
