Melanie Thiel

WNTI Management / Development Director

Mornings With Melanie  / Contours

It's been a long journey for me at WNTI. First starting out as a listener in the 1980's and now being part of management for the station and an employee of Centenary College. My passion for music started right from birth. My father was a drummer in a weekend band and my mother a dance instructor. I also have a brother and several aunts and uncles who were professional musicians so I guess it was just natural for me to end up in this business.

I host the Mornings with Melanie show from 6:00 - 9:00 am Monday through Friday and am also the Executive Producer and Host of Contours, WNTI's weekly issues and arts radio magazine.

Being involved with WNTI has opened a whole new world for me from interviewing musicians famous and not so famous to being the master of ceremonies on stage in front of over 5000 festival goers. I wouldn't trade my job for any other job in the world and when I'm old and grey, I'll show off my pictures and tell my stories to my grandchildren!

Mornings With Melanie hosted by Melanie Thiel is a production of WNTI and airs Mondays through Fridays 6 - 9 am Eastern Time U.S. - 91.9 FM

Contours hosted by Melanie Thiel (and Executive Producer) is a production of WNTI and airs Sundays 9-10 AM Eastern Time U.S. - 91.9 FM or Online
