Phil Wilke has been appointed the new general manager of North State Public Radio, KCHO–Chico and KFPR–Redding, joining the station at an exciting time as it begins its 50th year of broadcast service.
Wilke comes to NSPR from Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he serves as the director of membership and community outreach for KRWG Public Media, which provides public radio and television to communities in Southern New Mexico and West Texas. Prior to his time in Las Cruces, he served as media manager for Kansas Public Radio.
“I can't wait to get started at NSPR. The staff provides remarkable programming, news coverage and community outreach, and I look forward to helping the station thrive,” Wilke said.
