The results of the WMUC 2020 executive board elections were announced Wednesday, with a new general manager, program director and operations director, alongside a returning business director.

Rosa Pyo, a junior journalism major, was elected general manager. Pyo is in her second year volunteering with the radio station. She hosts the show “Screaming into the Void” and is a former promotions director. She plays a variety of genres on the show and incorporates her own poetry into the lineup.

She said her favorite part of being at the station is the community.
