Rick Westover began his career at WCMU in 1999, when he was hired as a student host of 'Nightside Jazz and Blues.' He also began reading local news and weather during the noon hour, which led to a full time position as local host of 'All Things Considered' in 2004. Rick won a pair of "Best in Category" awards from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters before moving to music in late-2006.
From late-2006 until 2015, Rick was the host of 'Music in the Morning,' a daily classical music program. He also launched 'The Set List' in 2008, which offers an eclectic mix of music, with a special emphasis on Michigan musicians.
In 2015, Rick was named WCMU's program director. He is now responsible for the general sound of the station, in addition to occasional on-air hosting duties.
