WEKU Director and General Manager Mike Savage has been elected to the Board of Directors for National Public Radio. Previously, Savage was General Manager of WBAA in West Lafayette, IN, and WKCC in Kankakee, IL. His three-year term begins in November.
This is Savage’s second term as a member director. Savage served on the NPR Board from 2014-2017 in leadership roles including Vice Chair of the Distribution Interconnect Committee.
“Not only will I be representing Kentucky and EKU, I’ll also be representing smaller public radio stations like WEKU which serve rural areas of our country,” Savage said.
“It’s important for stations like WEKU to be represented on the NPR board, and with Mike’s advocacy and experience, we’re elated he’s been elected for the second time,” said Dr. David McFaddin, EKU SVP for Operations and Strategic Initiatives.
