Peter Dominowski, GM of Northeast Indiana Public Radio, will step down at the end of the year, according to a Thursday press release.
Dominowski has worked in public media for 47 years and joined NIPR in 2013. NIPR manages WBOI, a news and music station, and WBNI, a classical station.
Under his leadership, “the organization achieved greater financial stability and listenership,” according to the release.
“The NPR brand continues to attract listeners and members who value the extensive reporting of international and national news, as well as music, conversations and humor heard 24/7 on WBOI,” said Lynne Gilmore, the board chair of NIPR, in the release. “The Northeast Indiana Public Radio Board of Trustees is grateful to Peter for his leadership and contributions to the organization, and we will continue this growth and listener engagement as we seek the next leader. We know WBOI is a critical source of news and local programming in our community and will continue to move our mission forward.”
Dominowski told Current that he is not retiring but moving back to his consulting practice, Dominowski Consulting and Management.
The station’s board is conducting a nationwide search for his successor.
