Louisville Public Media Hires Marketing and Engagement Manager
Louisville Public Media (LPM) has hired Kirsten Popp Pfalzgraf to be Marketing and Engagement Manager for Louisville’s three public radio stations: 89.3 WFPL, Classical 90.5 WUOL and 91.9 WFPK. This new position helps LPM grow its mission of community service through greater awareness of the stations and the services they offer, as well as creating greater value to the community and LPM supporters through new and enhanced communication, events, and community engagement.
“We look forward to making sure that everyone in the community has the opportunity to enjoy our services, and that we become even more essential to the more than 150,000 people who already listen to our stations and use our digital platforms,” says Gray Smith, LPM Director of Development and Marketing. “Kirsten Pfalzgraf brings a great collection of experience from her years in the same role at another of Louisville’s top not-for-profit institutions, the Speed Art Museum.”
Pfalzgraf added: "What attracted me to Louisville Public Media is their commitment and enthusiasm for serving the Louisville community through their multi-station programming. I grew up listening to public radio and have been a long time supporter in my adult life. I am thrilled to develop an even deeper level of support by becoming a part of the Louisville Public Media team. Louisville is very fortunate to have not one, but three high quality public radio stations, and each one plays a part in my family’s daily life."
Since its founding in 1996, when Louisville’s three public radio stations came together under one umbrella organization, LPM has made industry-leading strides in management efficiency, audience growth and community support. LPM has made substantial investments in expanding the newsroom in order to reverse the significant decline in local journalism and community service. A focus on building awareness and use of these services is essential to the organization’s future strength and public service.
