My name is Shane Toven. I am the Director of Engineering for Wyoming Public Media. I got my start in broadcasting at the tender young age of 15 as a volunteer for KAXE-FM in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. KAXE’s contract engineer, Mark Persons, showed me the finer points of Broadcast Engineering during my time there. I eventually became KAXE’s full-time engineer and spent a considerable amount of time upgrading their studio technology and launching their first website with streaming audio and video. After my time at KAXE I worked for Minnesota Public Radio for about five years and then took a job with a major broadcast equipment manufacturer. That job ultimately led me to Wyoming Public Media. When I’m not out around the great state of Wyoming maintaining our 23 mountaintop tower sites I enjoy spending time with my wife, Andrea and our dogs (both shelter rescues). “Callie” my 7 year old black lab/chow mix occasionally accompanies me on site visits. At one point she nudged a malfunctioning piece of equipment with her nose and it sprung back to life! Perhaps I should be worried?
