After a national search, New Hampshire Public Radio has chosen Jim Schachter as its new President and CEO.
“His experience and perspective reporting from some of our nation’s great newsrooms, and managing high-performing teams, will be an asset as we work to build upon NHPR’s tradition of excellence, deep community engagement, and value to listeners,” said Peter Burger, Chair of the NHPR board.
Schachter comes to New Hampshire from the nation’s largest public radio station — WNYC in New York City. Prior to that, he spent 17 years at The New York Times, working as a Senior Editor in the business and culture departments and at The New York Times Magazine before rising to the masthead position of Associate Managing Editor. Earlier in his career, Schachter reported and edited for 10 years — primarily on the business beat — at The Los Angeles Times. He also covered labor issues for The Kansas City Star.
