100 Watts and a Wire was created by two-time Emmy Award-winning producer Christian Cudnik to help provide quality information and entertainment to the amateur radio community.
Christian began his career in terrestrial radio in the early 90’s where he worked as an on-air personality for heritage rock station WIYY in Baltimore. In 1998, he joined legendary Philadelphia rock station WMMR where he attained the number one-rated radio program and was nominated for two AIR Awards. In 2003, Christian became an on-air host for St. Louis Public Radio as well as the voice of the St. Louis Symphony. In 2014, he partnered with the National Blues Museum to create the National Blues Museum Radio program, of which Christian was the producer and on-air host. The show debuted in St. Louis and became syndicated around the world. Christian has Director and Executive Producer credits on several film documentaries and episodic programs. His amateur radio podcast 100 Watts and a Wire is a living example of how a shared interest, amplified by digital media, can build community, spark engagement and expand brand. Christian’s production catalogue spans a diverse portfolio of art and cultural programs for various institutions featuring podcasts, audio description, voice overs, and live streams.
