A longtime employee and fundraiser for Kansas Public Radio has been named the nonprofit’s new director.
Feloniz Lovato-Winston will become the director for Kansas Public Radio and its Audio-Reader program, officials at the University of Kansas — which oversees the radio operations and other affiliated operations — announced.
Lovato-Winston has been in the radio and reading services industry for the past 13 years, and most recently served as the major gifts and corporate sponsorships coordinator for the station. She’s also served as director of development for both KPR and Audio-Reader.
She will begin serving as director in September.
“I’m incredibly honored to have been selected for this position,” Lovato-Winston said. “Kansas Public Radio and Audio-Reader provide vital access to news, information and cultural experiences. The dedication and passion of the staff and volunteers have been a source of inspiration for me over the years, and I’m excited to continue to work with such a talented group in my new role as director.”
KPR broadcasts a variety of programs through multiple radio frequencies across the state, including 91.5 KANU in Lawrence. It carries programming from National Public Radio, regional news, and a variety of musical programming.
Audio-Reader is an organization that provides audio versions of newspapers, magazines, and books to people who are blind or visually impaired.
