KZMU has announced the retirement of station manager Marty Durlin. “We are sad to lose Marty, but also happy for her as she takes on her next adventure and are grateful for the exceptional effect she’s had on our station and our community,” said a press release from the station.

Durlin took over KZMU at a time of uncertainty when the station was hindered by a major funding cut from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, according to the press release. She rallied the KZMU audience and made sure that the station would not only survive, but thrive. During her tenure, the press release said she introduced a daily news broadcast to the regular music programming and produced and directed three original radio plays, while maintaining and promoting KZMU’s program schedule.

The new manager of KZMU will be the current music director, Serah Mead. Mead has been a DJ at KZMU for five years, and a staff member for nearly three years. Board members say Mead has shown skill, professionalism, dedication, and creativity during her time at KZMU.

“The board is very excited to have Serah taking the helm,” said the news release. “In these days of corporate radio and Internet algorithms, KZMU is grateful to our listeners in the Moab community and beyond for supporting our beloved station.”
