There’s a new general manager as well as a new chief engineer at WIHS(FM) in Middletown, Conn. And both are the same person: Steve Tuzeneu.
Connecticut Radio Fellowship announced that Tuzeneu will take those roles at the Christian station beginning July 15. He replaces GJ Gerard, who has held those roles for 25 years and is retiring.
“Tuzeneu brings over 45 years of diverse radio station experience, from announcing to engineering to management,” the organization announced. “His career is coming full circle, because he worked for WIHS from 1985-1991 when the station was located in downtown Middletown.”
It noted that Tuzeneu (“TOO-zen-oo”), a native of New Jersey, has held staff positions at faith-based radio stations in Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin. He most recently was a network staff engineer for the Bible Broadcasting Network, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He has a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcasting/business administration, CBT certification from the Society of Broadcast Engineers, an FCC General Class Radio Engineering License and an Extra Class Amateur Radio License.
The announcement was made by Drew Crandall, president of Connecticut Radio Fellowship.
