Linda Carducci serves as Saturday morning program host on Classical WETA 90.9, as part of a long career in radio. Like other program hosts at Classical WETA, Linda grew up in a musical family where classical music and opera were constant soundtracks. Linda received classical training on piano and an undergraduate degree in music, hosted a daily classical music program on a Pittsburgh radio station, and spent four years in the public relations office of the Pittsburgh Symphony Society, where she had the pleasure of working with internationally-renowned musicians and Pittsburgh Symphony orchestra members. Before joining Classical WETA, Linda worked as an on-air announcer in various formats at commercial radio stations in Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. Away from work, Linda attends as many live classical music and opera performances as time permits, and enjoys playing piano, visiting museums, and following professional tennis.
