Peter Dominowski will join the University Station Alliance as its executive director, the organization announced Thursday.
Dominowski begins in the role Monday. He will succeed Virginia Dambach, who is retiring after nearly five years in the role.
Dominowski led Northeast Indiana Public Radio for nearly a decade as its president and GM. He is also a co-founder of the Public Radio Program Directors Association. He worked as a PD at WMFE in Orlando, Fla., and WFMT in Chicago.
“Peter’s demonstrated commitment to the mission and core values of public media along with his experience as a general manager, VP of development, program director, trainer, and researcher make him a valuable resource for stations,” said U:SA Board President Kerry Swanson in the announcement.
Dominowski has also served as president of Market Trends Research & Consulting, which conducted focus groups and survey research for public media clients.
“The U:SA Board is especially excited to have Peter apply his research background to provide new benchmark data on various aspects of university/institutional licensee management,” the organization said.
“Public media’s history is one of challenges presented, and challenges met,” Dominowski said in the announcement. “I have confidence that the high value of our services to listeners and viewers, combined with the talent and creativity of public media professionals, will help us to sustain and grow the essential programming we provide to all Americans.”
