Vocalo.org has hired Silvia Rivera as executive director. Rivera, former g.m. of Chicago’s Radio Arte, is chair of the Latino Public Radio Consortium board. She played a key role in the drafting of LPRC’s 2007 “brown paper.” At Vocalo, she succeeds Wendy Turner, who was promoted to v.p. at Chicago Public Radio, Vocalo.org’s parent station. Rivera began her public media career in 1998 at Radio Arte, a Chicago public radio station and media training program serving Latino youth. She rose through the ranks to become g.m. in 2006. “I look forward to helping realize the potential of Vocalo.org,” Rivera said in a news release. “First-person storytelling, music, and the art of media-making are passions of mine, so I am thrilled to be joining a team of creative visionaries that recognize that these elements can help redefine public media and engage a new generation.”
