Joanna Manaenkov has joined Kansas Public Radio as a full-time underwriting sales representative, joining a staff of four development professionals that raise almost half of the station's $2.1 million annual budget.
Manaenkov most recently worked as a tracking and research coordinator at the Kansas University Endowment Association, helping build and maintain a database of donors and prospective donors and working with the association's development staff on gift acquisition.
She graduated from KU in 2003 with degrees in Slavic languages and literature and in theater and film. She is working toward her KU master's degree in international studies.
At KPR, Manaenkov underwrites sales and prospects across northeast Kansas and the Kansas City metro area, working semi-annual membership drives and staffing KPR events.
