Farewell, Kathi

20100414-rock-bottom-remainders-kathi-kamen-goldmark-portrait-300x205.jpg

We were saddened to receive the news that Kathi Kamen Goldmark, longtime producer for West Coast Live, died on May 24 (2012) at UCSF Medical Center after a long battle with breast cancer. 

Kathi had a gift for bringing people together, and putting on a show.  She was great to work with, and had a sense of humor that never stopped. 

Thank you, Kathi, and farewell.

Read Kathi's obituary from the San Francisco Sunday Chronicle.

Matt Martin was KALW’s general manager from 2006 through 2018. Under his leadership, KALW grew into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
