Favorite things: anything journalistic or musical, starting the day before the sun rises and people who are amused by life, not burdened by it.
Astha was born in Nepal but did most of her schooling in India. After earning her Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from Delhi University in India and a summer course in Management in London School of Economics in UK, she decided to come to Clark University in Worcester for her MBA in Marketing. During her two years at Clark, she honed her marketing skills not only in class but also in the "real world" as a summer intern at both KPMG Advisory Services and Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages in India. When she graduated in May 2010, she was offered an internship at WICN Public Radio as a website and social media intern. As the months passed by she became more and more involved with the station and took on more responsibilities. She eventually took on the role of Membership Coordinator and since then there has been no looking back. You will find her at the station knee deep in working out every little detail of our membership program, harassing hosts to send information about their shows for our website and social media, chatting with our beloved volunteers, hosts, staff (anybody she can get a hold of) and enjoying all the great music on WICN. She loves her job and people she works with. And although she did not grow up listening to jazz, she is really enjoying learning all about it directly from the talented artists and our knowledgeable hosts.
Kate Travaline joined the WICN family in December 2009 as Administrative & Development Coordinator. She works closely with the General Manager in Underwriting development, marketing communications and administrative duties. A graduate of Villanova University with a degree in Theater/English, Kate attended the Lee Strasburg Theater Institute before beginning a career in Marketing Communications at Eastman Radio in New York City. She soon joined an upstart company, Screenvision, Inc. and learned the ins and outs of commercial advertising in the Big Apple. After moving to the Philadelphia area in the late 80’s, Kate worked in the Marketing Department of The PMA Group, working her way from Communications Coordinator to Sr. Writer/Editor. She brought these skills to Fleer/Skybox, Inc. a division of Marvel Comics, where she wrote and edited licensed entertainment cards which led to her appointment as PR Manager of Entertainment. Kate often volunteers in her community, and as the President of the Uxbridge Education Foundation, she raises monies for scholarships and grants within the schools. Kate enjoys spending time with her four children, including twin boys, attending baseball games, watching old movies, writing poetry and gardening.
Kate’s musical tastes tend to be more “Against the Grain,” but she’s loving and learning all about jazz and the public radio experience – every day is an adventure!
