The Audio-Reader Network at Kansas University should have a new director by the middle of next week, the chairman of a search committee said today.

Ellen Unruh, outreach coordinator of Audio-Reader and chairman of the director's search committee, said a director would be chosen from six finalists.

"We had 36 applicants and we conducted six interviews," she said.

The director of Audio-Reader will oversee seven full-time staff members and 180 volunteers for the network, she said.

Unruh said a nationwide search for a new director has been going on since mid-October.

Audio-Reader has been without a permanent director since the end of September.

Janet Campbell, Audio-Reader operations manager and acting director of the program, said the search committee would make a recommendation to the vice chancellor of the Office of Research, Graduate Studies and Public Service.

The search committee has sought input from Audio-Reader staff, volunteers and listeners, Campbell said.
