Louisville Public Media Seeks President and General Manager

Jun 17, 2016

Louisville Public Media (LPM) seeks a President and General Manager for its highly successful public media service to the citizens of Louisville and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Through multiple platforms – radio, internet, and emerging media – LPM seeks to engage all segments of its community with compelling programming that informs, enriches and connects people to one another, to the state, to the nation, and to the world.

LPM’s vision is to be the essential resource for news and culture in the community, filling a void in local journalism and cultural programming; to lead the way in the development of new technologies which keep the public aware, informed, and engaged; and to be the primary convener of discussion about the key issues affecting the diverse community.

LPM is home to three distinct, award-winning radio stations and the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting; 90.5 WUOL and 91.9 WFPK are cultural champions in a city whose economy and identity are increasingly defined by its cultural offerings. The region’s only 24-hour classical station, WUOL also performs educational outreach and hosts free weekly performances. WFPK features a nationally-broadcast show, offering local talent national renown, and hosts free, community concerts, affording over 20,000 Louisvillians the opportunity to hear live music while boosting the city’s cultural capital. Meanwhile, 89.3 WFPL is Louisville’s only locally owned major news outlet. In addition, the WFPL team has won National Edward R. Murrow Awards, George Polk Awards, Emmy Awards, and the Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize among numerous other national and local awards.

High-quality information. Factual, independent journalism. Cultural and civic engagement. LPM is the only entity serving the community in this way, offering Louisville what no one else can through its distinct radio stations and investigative reporting unit.
