Farewell to Early Music Show host Eric Betthauser

Fond Farewell to
Eric Betthauser
Host of The Early Music Show

Eric Betthauser


We are sorry to report that, because of other pressing commitments, Eric Betthauser has decided to relinquish his spot as an announcer on the Early Music Show (Monday 5 to 7 PM). His last official show was part of the classical marathon on 11 December. Eric brought a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the show, and his musical selections were always superb. All of us at WTJU will greatly miss him. Eric continues in his professional career as a middle- and high-school choir teacher, and will be devoting more time to performing, improvising, and creating music with local groups Mira and Soul 4 Soul. We hope that our paths will cross again, and he has promised to appear as a substitute announcer on WTJU from time to time. The Early Music Show will continue with long-time show hosts Jenny Wyss and Cinder Staunton, who will be joined by a new announcer in the New Year.
