Michelle Maternowski

Digital Services Coordinator

Michelle is WUWM’s Digital Services Coordinator. She is responsible for all things digital - from overseeing WUWM’s digital platforms to managing WUWM's online and social media content.

She is also behind many special projects at the station. Michelle coordinates Bubbler Talk, a series that uses the Hearken platform to engage WUWM’s audience in the reporting process.

Michelle is part of the team that created the award-winning web project, More Than My Record, an offshoot of WUWM’s Project Milwaukee: Black Men in Prison series. More Than My Record allowed those who were formerly incarcerated to tell their own stories.

Michelle was also involved with Precious Lives, a series on guns, kids and how to stop the violence in Milwaukee. In 2016, she was named station collaborator for Precious Lives: Before the Gunshots, which was part of AIR’s national Localore: Finding America initiative. Through that, came Precious Lives: The Live Show, a live performance series with which Michelle was deeply involved.

Before being named the station’s Digital Services Coordinator in 2014, Michelle was an assistant producer for Lake Effect (2007-2008) and WUWM’s Web Marketing Specialist (2008-2014).

She holds bachelor degrees in Marketing and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
