Schiwa Schlei

Programmchefin | COSMO

On the one hand, Schiwa Schlei is head of programming at COSMO, the young, international cultural radio station of WDR, rbb and Radio Bremen. On the other hand, she heads ARD Partner Management Audio & Voice, the operational unit at ARD that is centrally dedicated to the distribution of audio and voice offerings. Both reflect her passion and her journalistic career, as the digital world has been her home from the very beginning. At 1LIVE, she built up the Internet editorial team - initially focusing on the website, later on social media and the app. Her career in public broadcasting began at SWR3.de, before she moved on to WDR.de and sportschau.de. She studied modern and eastern European history, political science and media studies, then completed a cross-media traineeship at rp-online, one of Germany's first daily newspapers on the web.
