Introductions are always a good place to start. I’m News Director at KUER in Salt Lake City and I have the privilege of managing a talented staff of 5 reporters and hosts. PRNDI Members at this year’s conference approved a motion to expand the governing board by one additional “At Large” representative and voters elected me to that post.  The greatest part about this position is that I’m not replacing any of the very talented members of the board.  I’m here to contribute and continue making PRNDI an organization that lives up to its expectations.
