KSER's new chief: former KIRO radio news exec

Independent public radio station KSER-FM (90.7) in Everett has hired a former big-city program director to be station manager.

The KSER Foundation board of directors announced today that Tom Clendening will assume the duties July 2. Among other stops during a long commercial radio career, Clendening was program director of then-news-talk KIRO-AM (710) from 1995-2007.

"We are excited about the experience Tom will bring to KSER and thrilled that he is a longtime Everett resident who understands the local north Puget Sound community that we serve," foundation president Brenda Mann Harrison said in a statement. "Tom's ability to produce great radio and generate support for that service will strengthen KSER, and his broad range of experience in the industry will add professional and business expertise as we continue to improve and expand our service."

The news release also quoted Clendening: "KSER is a valuable public service that’s focused on our local community. The station’s lineup of local news, educational and music shows provides a unique voice that you can’t get anywhere else. I look forward to continuing that community focus and raising awareness of how public radio can help connect our ever-growing, diverse region."

There will be a public reception at which listeners can meet Clendening from 7 to 8:30 p.m. June 27 at KSER, 2623 Wetmore Ave. in Everett.

The station late last year celebrated its 20th anniversary. The Federal Communications Commission has granted KSER a permit to add a second frequency, broadcasting from 89.9 FM in Freeland on Whidbey Island.
