October 2012 Transitions

Prometheus is pleased to welcome Julia Wierski as the new Director of Development and Communications.  Julia joined Prometheus in October 2012 after several years of working with the organization. In 2010, she worked on encroachment notification for LPFMs, and more recently she worked with our Policy Director, Brandy Doyle, as a campaign associate. She is excited to connect supporters to Prometheus to ensure that our great work will continue for many years to come!

Julia grew up in the Philadelphia area, and has been a radio enthusiast since childhood. Whether it was making her own crystal radio set or creating audio tape archives of the airwaves, she has an extensive knowledge and interest in the medium. Julia's work within the field includes ten years as a DJ and consultant at WPRB FM in Princeton, NJ. She also worked as an associate producer for WHYY in Philadelphia and volunteered for WFMU in Jersey City, NJ. She is also a member of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia. She has an Associate Degree in Communications from Camden County College.
