Abstract

Oral history interview with Rob Lorei, News and Public Affairs Director for WMNF-FM, a community radio station in Tampa, Florida. Lorei was one of the founding members of the station, which went on the air in 1979, and played a pivotal role in its inception and development. In this interview, he recounts the station's history, including initial fundraising endeavors, obtaining the necessary equipment, the three buildings where the station has been housed, and some notable incidents such as the controversy with State Senator John Grant. Lorei also discusses the responsibilities of his job, including the planning for his daily news show, and the station's focus on news and public affairs programming.
