(Boston) – Boston University today announced that Peter Fiedler will be the interim general manager of WBUR-FM. Fiedler met with station managers today and will begin work immediately.
“Sitting down with staff members will be my top priority,” said Fiedler, who will oversee the day-to-day operations of the station during the search for a permanent general manager. “I want to hear from employees at all levels of the operation as we work on strengthening one of the top public radio stations in the country.”
Fiedler began his 25-year media career in television production at WCVB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Boston, where he held a variety of positions including unit manager and field producer/director. He provided creative production and direction to an interactive video startup in 1984. He then became Vice President and General Manager for Target Productions and then served as Director of Operations for Channel 68 in Boston. Fiedler currently oversees sports broadcasting, media services, publications and the classroom upgrade technology program as an assistant vice president at Boston University.
Fiedler, who lives with his wife and three children in Boxford, is the son of legendary Boston Pops Conductor Arthur Fiedler and remains actively involved in the annual 4th of July concert on the Esplanade.
