Feloniz Lovato-Winston will lead Kansas Public Radio as its director, the network’s licensee the University of Kansas announced Tuesday.
Lovato-Winston succeeds Dan Skinner, who is retiring after eight years leading KPR. She will also lead Audio-Reader, an audio service for people who are blind, visually impaired or print disabled.
“Kansas Public Radio and Audio-Reader provide vital access to news, information and cultural experiences,” Lovato-Winston said in a press release. “The dedication and passion of the staff and volunteers have been a source of inspiration for me over the years, and I’m excited to continue to work with such a talented group in my new role as director.”
Lovato-Winston, who begins in the new role next month, currently works as KPR’s major gifts and corporate sponsorships coordinator.
“We are delighted to welcome Feloniz as the next director of KPR and Audio-Reader,” said Joe Monaco, associate vice chancellor for public affairs for the University of Kansas, in the release. “Felly’s combination of experience, talent and vision set her apart and make her a terrific fit for this role. We are excited about the future of Kansas Public Radio and Audio-Reader under her leadership.”
