Two new voices will join 89.3 The Current's airwaves as hosts in the coming weeks.
The Twin Cities radio station, which is part of Minnesota Public Radio, announced Monday that it has hired Zeke Salo and Maddie Schwappach to be hosts.
Salo worked at Go 95.3 and Go 96.3 doing work on-air and behind the scenes prior to the radio stations being sold to Christian music broadcaster Educational Media Foundation. Schwappach is the former music director at the University of Minnesota's Radio K and was an intern at The Current.
Their new schedules "are being determined and will be announced in the coming weeks," The Current said.
"I'm thrilled to have these two passionate music fans join our team at The Current," The Current's managing director David Safar said in a statement. "We'll be sharing more soon on when you can hear Maddie and Zeke on the air."
Salo says he's excited to join the "amazing team at The Current" as an on-air host, telling Bring Me The News he's not sure about his time slot yet but he's "excited for the new journey and still be part of the Twin Cities music scene."
Schwappach credits the radio station for her being immersed in the local music scene as a teenager growing up in Minnesota.
"At a time when that community is more critical than ever, I'm excited and humbled at this opportunity to connect with other music fans over the air," Schwappach said in a statement.
