It is with great pride and sadness that the staff of WFMT says good-bye to our friend and colleague George Preston. George joined our staff in March of 2009. He leaves to take a position as General Manager at KCME in Colorado Springs. Off-mic, George has brought good cheer, friendship, and the highest level of professionalism. On-mic, he has been a fixture in the lives of our afternoon audience. His knowledge—especially of opera: the performers and performance history—have added a wonderful dimension to his afternoon programs, as well as to our live broadcasts from Lyric Opera. George will be missed.
We asked George to suggest one of his favorite moments at WFMT. Here it is, an Impromptu with baritone Thomas Hampson and pianist Robert Tweten.
George, we the friends, the volunteers, and the staff of WFMT wish you well. May your new path be rewarding and full of joy for you and your family. Stay in touch!
