Kim Macon

Tonight at 9pm J:Cubed host, Karl Smith, kicks off his first show of the new year with a tribute to WVPE's recently retired Development Director, Kim Macon. 

Hear one of Kim's favorites from her playlist tonight when you tune into 88.1 WVPE at 9pm for J:Cubed Jazz to the 3rd Power: Cool, Smooth and Hot!

When I turn the corner at the top of the stairs, there’s Kim, Kim Macon, the Development Director at WVPE, behind her desk and a computer screen, in her dimly lit office.
    

“Hi Kim.”
    

“Hey Sid.”
    

That begins my day at WVPE.
    

I’m not exactly sure what Kim does at the station. It’s my impression that she carries it around on her shoulders.

“Hi Kim.”

“Hey Sid.”

“Kim, I gotta ask ya, what is it, exactly, that you do here at WVPE?”

“I do a little bit of everything,” says Kim.

WVPE's Development Director of 27 years, Kim Macon, retires January 3, 2020. She leaves a legacy that is difficult to sum up in a web post. Suffice it to say her guidance has helped the station grow membership, underwriting and its financial footing. Part of Kim's DNA is humility, so getting her to talk about herself was no small task.

We did get her to sit down with us to talk a little bit about some of her reflections.
