Impact 89FM | WDBM-FM

George McNeill, Station Manager Emeritus

George McNeill (he/him) worked at Impact 89FM from 2018 to 2022, having served as the Station Manager, Operations Manager, and Assistant Program Director (now known as Programming Assistant). He contributed to the station's staff restructuring during the COVID-19 pandemic, renewal of its performance feedback system, and helped put on the GROUPLOVE concert in 2022.

As a volunteer, George contributed to the Entertainment, Street, News, Audio Production, Graphics and Music Review teams, and was a founding member of the station's DEI Committee. He also pitched in on several podcasts, especially Social Night and The Undercurrent. As a DJ on the station's airstaff, George was an avid fan of all sorts of sound, specifically in the realms of funk, jazz, R&B and rock. Though his all-time favorite bands remain The Beatles and Talking Heads, he also had a soft spot for the sounds of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Tyler, the Creator, Mitski, and Mako Road. His favorite song on air was "Another" by RuRu -- which always reminded me of his friendships at WDBM, especially with Amber Kienutske.

Impact 89FM was the highlight of George's time at MSU. George can be connected with at https://www.linkedin.com/in/george-mcneill/
