Mike Sauter

Host: Slacker Rewind, Friday 10 PM to midnight

Mike Sauter, WYEP Station Manager, became a radio addict as a young child in Rochester, NY. He’s worked on multiple ends of the music world, including a job at a “High Fidelity”-style record shop, a gig spinning records at a bar, a brief stint sorting mail for A&M Records, and an even shorter attempt to be a music performer.

However, the majority of his life has involved playing music on the radio, starting in 1984 at his college radio station in Ithaca, NY.  He was a long-time DJ at one of the pioneering alternative rock stations, WHTG/Asbury Park in New Jersey. Sauter started at WYEP in 2004 as a program director and held the position of Midday Mix host and music director before becoming the station manager in 2019.
