Charles Compton is a 30 year veteran of public radio, who has been news director at WEKU for five years, has won numerous awards for investigative journalism, soft features, science reporting, and newscasts from the Associated Press, the Society of Professional Journalists and Public Radio News Directors, Inc.
As a student-reporter, he was at work at a public radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio when NPR introduced “Morning Editon” to the world.
