Prove your humanity

Kathy Knauer

Executive Producer

Kathy came to radio by accident. She started out wanting to help a handful of dedicated volunteers produce a weekly environmental radio show, then got roped in as the volunteer executive producer. That was over 25 years ago. The volunteer gig ended in 2002, when The Allegheny Front received its first operating grant. Today, Kathy leads a team of award-winning journalists who report on environmental stories that impact the lives of the people in our region.

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 multiple watersheds. She has a Master of Science in Environmental Health from the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh.
