Boyce has significant experience with the jazz scene, but her experience goes well beyond the realm of Jazz, including stints at Radio One, Clear Channel Radio, Bonneville International, KETC Channel Nine, STL TV, and the City of St. Louis. Boyce also has an extensive background in education, which is fortuitous, being that WSIE is based on the SIUE campus.

According to WSIE General Manager Jason Church, hiring Boyce will be key in solidifying the future for this heritage St. Louis radio station. “Robin has a proven track record when it comes to selling this format,” he said. “She had great success when we worked together at 106.5 Smooth Jazz (WSSM) back in the mid-2000s, and I feel that success will translate to what we’re doing here at WSIE. This is a vital turning point in the story of WSIE. It is the beginning of a wonderful turnaround that will lead us toward growth sooner rather than later.”
