CPR governance, HD planning under fire

Frances Koncilja, an attorney who resigned from Colorado Public Radio’s board last week, is challenging the lack of transparency in decision-making by CPR leaders. “They’re talking about reducing the size of the board and selling the AM stations,” Koncilja tells the alternative weekly Westword, “and I find that an irresponsible way to govern an organization, especially when none of this was discussed at the board meetings.” CPR broadcasts its news and information service on AM stations in three markets. Board Chair Barry Curtiss-Lusher tells Westword that Koncilja’s criticisms are based on “a significant misunderstanding” about CPR’s long-term plans for high-definition radio services.
