Remembering Lisa Barry

It is with profound grief and sadness that we must tell you that our dear colleague and friend, Lisa Barry, local host of All Things Considered, passed away Tuesday night due to complications from a heart condition. Lisa was a seasoned journalist and award-winning broadcaster.  Beyond that she was a bright light and joy to all who knew her.  She leaves a huge hole on our team and in our hearts.

We will provide details on services and a memorial as we learn them.  Please keep Lisa’s husband and family in your thoughts at this sad and tragic time.

Mary Motherwell, known as Molly, joined the WEMU staff in November of 1991 as Marketing and Development Director after stints in public relations at Domino’s Pizza International, and as an account executive first at the old Ypsilanti Press and then the former WIQB-FM. In December 2010, upon his retirement, she succeeded Arthur Timko as General Manager, only the third GM in WEMU’s 57 year history.
