“Being part of a community-powered radio station has been my passion for as long as I can remember,” Zori said. “From my early days at WMSE to my work now at 88Nine, I’ve been able to give back to my city by working hard to highlight the local bands, businesses and organizations that make Milwaukee a dynamic place to live. I’m so excited to become a stronger voice at 88Nine to help shape not only the future of the station but our next generation of broadcasters.”
