WUIS shuffles administrators, adds 'Food Desk'

A new local-programming initiative, WUIS Food Desk, will begin airing March 1 on WUIS-FM, the public radio station based at the University of Illinois Springfield.

Executive editor of WUIS Food Desk will be Bill Wheelhouse, who had been WUIS general manager.

Randy Eccles, who has been the station’s development director since 2008, will replace Wheelhouse as general manager. Eccles formerly was with radio stations WGN-AM in Chicago and KTAR-AM/FM in Phoenix.

Food Desk will cover “everything from the seed to the plate,” Eccles said.

Food Desk will be featured throughout the day on a variety of programs, including “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition.” he said.

WUIS was featured by The State Journal-Register on February 22, 2013.
