Program Director | WDR COSMO
On the one hand, Schiwa Schlei is program director of COSMO, the young, international cultural radio station from WDR. On the other hand, she is jointly responsible for digital program and product development for the entire WDR. Both reflect her passion and her journalistic career, because the digital world has been her home from the beginning. She established the internet editorial department of 1LIVE, initially focusing on the website and later on social media and apps. She started her public service broadcasting career at SWR3.de, followed by further stations at WDR.de and sportschau.de. She studied history, politics and media studies, followed by a cross-media traineeship at rp-online, one of the first daily newspapers on the net in Germany.
