While most of you probably know KPCC by the voices you hear on air every day, our station requires the contributions of so many talented, unique individuals whose names aren’t said at the end of a news story or even in the production credits at the end of the week. These are the people who truly make KPCC -- who keep our broadcast equipment running, who put on our pledge drives and help secure sponsorships and major donations, who put together the pre-recorded spots you hear between shows, who make sure that our facilities at the Mohn Broadcast Center are operating smoothly.

This week on AirTalk, we’re highlighting some of these amazing people who work at KPCC who might not be as familiar with but whose tireless efforts are critical to what you hear on the air every day. Today, we’re featuring a couple of folks from our broadcast and media operations department, whose expertise ensures that all the technical aspects of our radio broadcast are running as they should be and at the highest level.

Guests:

Bianca Ramirez, KPCC broadcast production manager

Aaron McGrath, KPCC media and broadcast technology manager
