"Adding such an experienced writer steeped in the Milwaukee music scene really ups our digital game," said Imig. "Evan has built a stellar reputation as a thoughtful and talented music writer and journalist. His stellar writing and editing will allow us to build on RadioMilwaukee.org's solid foundation as a source for in-depth coverage of the Milwaukee music scene. Evan's work will help us offer even more breadth to the thousands who visit our website every week."
"Radio Milwaukee has been an invaluable advocate for the city and its music scene," added Rytlewski. "It's an honor to join a staff so passionate and creative, and I look forward to helping the station expand its online presence while continuing to cover the music that I love."
