A Fond Farewell to David Ginder and Marilyn Cooley

David Ginder and Marilyn Cooley

Dear friends,
It is truly bittersweet for me to bring you the news that David Ginder and Marilyn Cooley are leaving Classical WETA.
David and Marilyn share a deep love for the great outdoors and, specifically, the Colorado Rockies.  They have both hoped that one day they would live and work in that beautiful part of the country.  That day has arrived.  David will be joining the on-air staff of Colorado Public Radio, while Marilyn pursues free-lance opportunities in the Denver area.
Our listeners know David and Marilyn as bedrocks of Classical WETA. Their daily on-air presence, their expertise at interviewing classical artists, their professionalism and zeal during on-air fundraising, their work in Washington’s cultural community and their countless behind-the-scenes contributions to the operation of the station, have been central to the sound and the spirit of Classical WETA.
All of us here at the station are saddened by the departure of these two cherished members of the Classical WETA family.  However, I hope you will join us in wishing David and Marilyn the very best as they move on to this next exciting chapter in their lives together.
David’s last day is June 6th; Marilyn’s is June 9th.  We thank them both for their decades of service to the station, and to the classical music community.
