Roger Karwoski

Assistant General Manager and Chief Engineer

Roger is KBIA’s assistant general manager and director of engineering. He’s also the unofficial station historian — he’s been a member of the staff since the station first went on the air in 1972!  Roger came to MU just after completing his MS degree at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville. Whether it’s the quality of the “sound” of KBIA, or the maintenance of the various pieces of broadcast equipment and computers that it takes to run the station, Roger is the guy called to make it all work. Roger also teaches audio production for the Department of Communication at MU.

Prior to his work at Missouri, Roger worked as an announcer and/or engineer at radio and TV stations in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.
