Kathy Knauer, Executive Producer

Executive Producer

Kathy came to radio by accident, volunteering to help out a little, then got roped in. That was over 18 years ago. Today, she leads a small team of dedicated environmental journalists—themselves an endangered species in the media landscape—who report on environmental stories that impact our lives.

For many years, Kathy was an environmental scientist with a wastewater agency and worked at Carnegie Mellon University managing a water quality survey of Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers and small watersheds. She has a Master of Science in Environmental Health from the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh.
