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!
