Jarl Mohn has only been on the job as NPR's president and CEO for a few weeks, but his relatable style and warm approachability are already having a local impact.
Wearing a stylish NPR T-shirt, he visited with KUNR staff as the first stop on his cross-country small-plane tour of just a handful of small stations. Mohn spent time getting acquainted with KUNR's staff and operation, shared his ideas and priorities and had a friendly visit over lunch at the station.
David Stipech interviewed Mohn in the KUNR studios July 24, discussing public radio, NPR and the plans, challenges and opportunities ahead. (Jarl is pronounced "Yarl.")
"It was great for a small station like KUNR to receive a personal visit from NPR's new leader as he's just getting started," Stipech noted. "Jarl energized the staff and I feel it's a refreshing sign of great things to come from NPR under his leadership."
