New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) seeks a visionary and collaborative leader to serve as its President and Chief Executive Officer (President/CEO).
Founded in 1981, NHPR is an independent, award-winning public radio/media company, and is New Hampshire's only National Public Radio affiliate. Each week, an average of 175,000 listeners turn to NHPR for information about and discussion of state, national, and international topics and issues. The organization has more than 70 employees and operates out of a state-of-the-art broadcast center in Concord, the capital of the state.
In recent years, NHPR has broadened its audience and delivery. It offers over-the-air programs, online streaming, and digital media that attract a global audience. A recent and highly successful campaign raised $5.14 million to support new and ongoing initiatives--expansion of NHPR's newsroom and local program production, online stories, web-based videos, downloadable audio podcasts, interactive digital tools and apps, and social media sites. These activities have garnered recognition from the industry; for three of the last four years--2015, 2017, and 2018--NHPR received the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for Overall Excellence (Small Market Radio).
NHPR seeks a President/CEO who will embrace its commitment to innovation; its passion for independent, high-quality, and accurate information; and its mission to foster community and civic discourse. Working with the board, staff, and stakeholders of NHPR, the President/CEO will craft and execute a vision and strategy for NHPR that is enterprising and sustainable. The President/CEO will be a forward-thinking and experienced executive, a sophisticated manager of human and financial resources, and a leader committed to open communication, free exchange of ideas, mutual respect, and transparency as befits an organization devoted to information-sharing and informed discourse. Given that this is a time of dynamic change in the industry, it will be important that the next President/CEO has an openness and comfort with risk, and a willingness to chart new courses in terms of content, revenue, marketing, and audience engagement.
