The Board of Directors of NPR announced in mid-August that it has been informed by President and Chief Executive Officer Gary E. Knell that he will leave this fall to become President and CEO of the National Geographic Society. Knell will remain with NPR until then to work with the Board to ensure a smooth transition as it launches a search for his successor.
As we move forward in this action packed year at KRCU we are quickly approaching our KRCU Fall Pledge Drive. The drive will begin on October 2 at 7:00 a.m. and will end on October 9 at 6:00 p.m. Our goal for the Fall Pledge Drive this year is $45,000. Our listeners strengthen our ability to provide quality news, music, and programming to Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and the Parkland.
