Deeb named local host for ‘All Things Considered’ on WKU Public Radio

Miller becomes full-time reporter for station

Longtime WKU PBS host Barbara Deeb is returning to her radio roots as she becomes the new local host of All Things Considered on WKU Public Radio (WKYU-FM). Rhonda Miller, who joined the station in 2015, will move into a full-time reporter’s role in the newsroom, covering various issues throughout the WKU Public Radio listening area.

Deeb originally came to Bowling Green as an anchor and reporter for WKYU-FM in 1980. In recent years, her duties have been primarily on WKU PBS as host of MainStreet and Outlook.

“I am delighted at the opportunity to come full circle in the career I love,” said Deeb. “I look forward to my new duties as host of All Things Considered while continuing to make meaningful television programs for our public radio and television audience.”

Earlier this year, Deeb was awarded the Silver Circle Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Ohio Valley Chapter. The honor salutes 25 years of distinguished service within the television industry. Deeb is the first from Bowling Green to receive the Silver Circle Award and only the 10th honoree from Kentucky.

“We are excited to have Barb in a more prominent role on the radio side,” said WKU Public Radio station manager Emil Moffatt. “Her presence has been a familiar one for years on both radio and television and we think our listeners will enjoy hearing her every afternoon. And adding Rhonda as another full-time reporter will really boost our ability to cover the region.”

All Things Considered airs from 3-6 p.m. CT weekday afternoons on WKU Public Radio.

“We are committed to providing public radio listeners the best in quality and content. Barb and Rhonda are both moving into roles that will greatly enhance our audience experience,” added David Brinkley, Director of WKU Public Broadcasting.
