One of the most beloved organizations in our region is getting a new leader. This summer, Tim Mead is taking over as president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

Mead has spent 40 years with the Los Angeles Angels, including the past two decades-plus as VP of Communications and an earlier run as assistant general manager. He’ll be bringing a 2002 World Series ring east to Cooperstown when he becomes the Hall’s seventh president, taking over for Jeff Idleson.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
