Lindsay Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
Rick is a card carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (SAG-AFTRA). He teaches audio and video storytelling at UWRF and since 1998, he’s enjoyed being associated with that roller coaster ride we fondly call, “Pure Radio 88.7.”
Sandy teaches broadcast news writing and reporting and provides guidance to WRFW’s news and public affairs staff. She has worked as a radio news director and reporter, TV reporter/photographer and a newspaper reporter/photographer. Sandy also spent 3 years as a TV “weather girl” in the days when that was a common term for weather reporters who were women. She still wonders why the men weren’t called “weather boys.”
