Shortly after retiring as an executive with a three-state gas and electric utility company, professional engineer George Weston and his family moved to Santa Fe in 2003. In September 2004, concerned about the affect of media consolidation on civil society, George started volunteering at KSFR. He quickly found himself spending forty hours a week at KSFR. He was elected to the KSFR board serving until he was hired full time. In November 2013 he was appointed by the board to be station manager upon the departure of the General Manager. He served in this role until a new General Manager was hired in January 2015. Currently George’s focus as Chief Technical Officer is planning, documenting and maintaining KSFR’s technical infrastructure and other special projects.
George is also very active in his church The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe having served on its board for five years. He was just elected to a two term as its president
