Today, Vivian Schiller took over as the new president & CEO of National Public Radio, to the welcome of us all at NPR, and I've moved to a new stint as executive VP. Three months as interim president & CEO and seven months before that as interim CEO have been a ten-month graduate school in management, so now new acronyms like EBITDA, LIBOR and UPMIFA trip off my tongue with ease. ;-) Vivian will be a terrific leader for NPR and for public radio in general. I know there a bunch of public broadcasters who read this neglected blog and I'd like to thank you for your support and encouragement since early March. The economy didn't exactly go the way I'd hoped when I came here, but NPR is a strong organization and public radio is extremely well-positioned to weather the rocky times in which we now find ourselves.
I'm hoping now to be able to devote a little more time to posting here. Cheers! --Dennis
