Sandy Tabor
Grants Manager
Q: What was your first job at WUSF and what did you do for the station?
A: I came to WUSF Public Media four years ago as Grants Manager.
Q: Are you still doing the same job, or something different?
A: I have the same job title but the work continues to change.
Q: If you had to select one program you’d like to keep on the air for the next 50 years – what would it be?
A: I think it is impossible to predict anything 5 years into the future let alone 50 years.
Q: When did you first learn about public radio?
A: I began listening to KANU, Kansas Public Radio, while attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
Q: What is your earliest memory of WUSF? 
A: I began listening to WUSF 89.7 as soon as I moved to Tampa.
Q: Which public broadcasting personality would you like to invite to a dinner party?  What’s the first question you’d ask him or her?
A: I was privileged to have lunch with the erudite writer and NPR Commentator Andrei Codrescu several years ago. I’ve also spent time with Susan Stamberg driving her from Sarasota to an event at the WUSF studios in Tampa. Those are two of my favorite NPR personalities. So at dinner I’d ask “how have you been?”
Q: What makes you look forward to coming into work every day?
A: I enjoy working with my WUSF colleagues.
