Joshua Sauvageau is the Operations Manager at WFMT. Joshua was a nuclear reactor operator on the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson from 2002-2006. When his enlistment ended, he decided to move to Chicago to go back to school. At that time he had the goal of being a recording engineer for either the Chicago Symphony Orchestra or WFMT. At Columbia College Chicago, he took a recording class taught by WFMT’s Mary Mazurek and started interning at the station in 2010. Working with Cydne Gillard and Jesse McQuarters on Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin, he soon worked his way up to overnight weekend board operator and eventually, recording engineer. For years, Joshua worked closely with WFMT’s former head of Operations, Don Mueller, and stepped into his role upon Don’s retirement.
