Stephanie Horton, who stepped up in February to serve as interim GM of Cheyenne Mountain Public Broadcast House, has been appointed to the job on a permanent basis.
The Colorado Springs–based public broadcaster runs the classical station KCME and Jazz 93.5 FM. Horton began in the role Wednesday, according to a press release. The board appointed her after conducting a national search for the stations’ next GM.
“It is an absolute privilege to serve not only KCME, Jazz 93.5 and their remarkable team, but all music lovers in the Pikes Peak Region and beyond,” Horton said in the release. She described “tremendous opportunity to expand both our on-air presence, as well as to bring more live, local and national music to the area.”
Horton first joined the organization in 2020 as development and marketing director.
She has previously worked at RSU Public Television in Claremore, Okla., and Houston Public Media.
