Rebecca Nystedt is a Production Assistant at the WFMT Radio Network. Her love of radio started early when she’d listen to sports, talk, or any local rock radio station with her Dad (dads, of course, have extensive knowledge on every subject, especially when it comes to batting averages and what band a musician used to play in) and she picked up the curiosity of all things.
Rebecca attended Columbia College Chicago (’13) to pursue a piano performance degree while dabbling in radio courses to fulfill the required electives. Halfway through the music program, she fell into radio and switched her major concentration. Immediately after graduation, she began working at WFMT as an overnight Board Operator, and also applied to various universities to pursue a master’s degree. She was accepted to DePaul University in Chicago where she received an MA in Digital Communication and Media Arts (DCMA ’16.)
Fast forward to the present, and she’s still a team member of WFMT, where she manages and creates for radio, and contributes production and digital media work to both the local and network sides.
