Ed DeFrancia | Chairman
After having a variety of 'careers' in the ski industry, restaurants and the Forest Service, Ed settled into teaching. After teaching middle school for 11 years in Dolores, CO, he moved his family to Moab in 1995 to work in outdoor education. Two years later, he missed the classroom and went back to public schools. He teaches mathematics, coaches soccer and tennis, and sponsors a variety of clubs at Grand County HS. He still works as a 'guest guide' for various companies in Moab, and has taken numerous trips to Mexico and Costa Rica, both with family and students.
J. Michele Blackburn | Trustee
Michele has been a KZMU supporter since 1995, and a devoted listener since moving to Moab, full-time, in 1999. She has served KZMU in a variety of capacities over the years, including: financial supporter, volunteer, KZMU Board Secretary, and as the Manager’s assistant for 7 years. She currently assists staff with the digitization of new music and current media files.
Michele returns for a second term as Trustee to continue the family tradition of involvement at KZMU. She also holds board positions for the benefit of two other nonprofits: Moab Taiko Dan and Threshold, Inc. You can usually find Michele -- playing Taiko drums, hanging out in nature, or at KZMU!
Michael Carlson | Secretary / Treasurer
Michael moved to Moab in the spring of 2006 and immediately became a
regular listener. He was delighted to be invited onto the KZMU board in
April '08. Michael was raised in Minnesota and has lived in Texas. His
work has included biological research and field work, teaching, bicycle
delivery, web design and river guiding. He now enjoys living far from
cities and working as a mountain bike guide. When not sitting at his
computer or riding his bike, he loves exploring the area on foot, on
skis or by raft.
Susette DeCoster-Weisheit | Trustee
Susette DeCoster-Weisheit has been a KZMU volunteer from its beginnings doing various tasks from substitute deejay, music organizing, general public supporter to former Board of Trustee member. She re-joined the Board of Trustees in December 2009 to continue that tradition of involvement. Susette moved to Moab from Colorado to work as a river guide in 1990. The next 12 years of guiding, her longest kept career, held her interest until her “retirement” to start her own business as a licensed massage therapist. She is confident she will be many more years doing work she loves in Moab.
