Judy Wagley

Host, Afternoon Classical Music

Judy is the newest addition to WCMU, joining the staff in December 2018. As producer and host of “Afternoon Classical Music,” she wants to share her life-long love of classical music with listeners, and have some fun along the way! She is also the producer of “Central Stage.”

Judy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Music History, and has worked at public and commercial radio stations in Toledo and Columbus, Ohio and Grand Rapids and Gaylord, Michigan. Before moving to Mount Pleasant, she was a writer/photographer for the Gaylord Herald Times.

Judy Plays French horn in the Northern Michigan Brass Band, Central Michigan Area Concert Band and Gateway Band. She is an avid swimmer and gardener, and insists that plants—like people—thrive when they listen to classical music.
