Toni Doman earned her Master’s Degree in Communications and Media Arts and Studies from Ohio University focusing on Appalachian music and culture as the core of her graduate research. She is also one of the few students to earn the world’s first four-year degree in traditional bluegrass music offered at Glenville State College in West Virginia. She intends to continue to work towards preserving and promoting the roots and branches of Appalachian and Country music and to give a positive voice for the people of the Appalachian region.
Toni is currently working in various roles with the Birthplace of Country Music organization as a Radio Station Associate, Museum Frontline Associate, and Grants Coordinator. You can catch her palling around with her trusty dachshund dog “Louvin” and on Radio Bristol Wednesdays at 5pm, playing Country, Western, and Americana music!
