Pope replaces Terra Brantley, who left the station in 2022. Tim Roesler has been serving as interim GM. Pope begins March 4.

“WBOI connects Northeast Indiana to the news it needs and the music it enjoys,” Pope said in a press release. “I look forward to building on those strengths, getting to know this community, and expanding what it means for WBOI to be this region’s public radio station.”

Pope was most recently station manager at Marfa Public Radio in Texas. He has also served as PD for VPM in Richmond, Va. 

“With an impressive track record of success in content, operations, and fundraising, Travis is well-equipped to guide our station towards continued growth and community engagement,” Tom Boyer, chair of WBOI’s board of directors, said in the release. “His commitment to journalistic integrity, innovative music programming, and fostering meaningful connections within the community align seamlessly with the core values of WBOI.”
