General Managers of Dartmouth Broadcasting

 

Note: Dartmouth Broadcasting has been run by a student “directorate” of four to ten members, appointed by their predecessors. I am attempting to assemble a list of all station office-holders over the years, both directorate and executive staff, with an indication of the careers they later pursued (an interesting study of what careers radio alumni actually go into). This is difficult as such a list has never existed, and records at the station are sketchy. If you were a member of the station and can add to this list your input is welcome. Following are the General Managers as I currently have them. A more detailed historical list of station staff can be found in my book College Radio Days, which is highly recommended.
