Madelyn Knapp

Marketing Assistant

Hailing from the Philadelphia region, I never thought I’d fall for a city full of yellow towels, infamous tunnel traffic, and zero chance of ordering coleslaw and fries on the side of my sandwich. I also never imagined I’d get the chance to work with people like this, at an amazing public radio station which plays the music I love most; yet here I am: loving my job, loving the sandwiches, and learning to love the tunnel traffic (that one’s a work in progress.)

As WYEP’s Marketing Assistant, I get to dig into concert proposals, social media marketing, and branding at events throughout the Pittsburgh area, as well as helping to organize major station events like the Holiday Hootenanny and Summer Music Festival. I can’t count how many people I’ve met who have a deep appreciation not only for the music we play, but also for our support of education and other non-profit initiatives in the greater Pittsburgh community.
