YPR Welcomes New General Manager Kurt Wilson

Jul 7, 2017

Kurt Wilson, Yellowstone Public Radio's new General Manager.

Yellowstone Public Radio’s long search for an outstanding General Manager is over, and we are thrilled to welcome Kurt Wilson to the station.

Kurt joins us from Michigan with 30 years of broadcasting experience, the last 15 of which were in public media. He said that “I love that the mission of public radio is to serve our local communities and to provide information and programming that makes a difference in our listeners’ lives.”

Kurt has worn many hats during his career—from producer, chief operating officer, director of corporate support and major gifts to news anchor and play-by-play announcer. He even created, produced and hosted the high-school quiz show Quiz Central and the travel show Destination Michigan during his time at Central Michigan University Public Broadcasting. Kurt knows the ins-and-outs of working in public radio, and we are confident he will be a positive force for our station.

“I'm excited to join the talented and dedicated YPR team to help them continue the great work that they do on a daily basis,” said Kurt. “I'm also excited to help the station move forward with initiatives that will help us serve our communities even more in the future.”

Join us and meet Kurt at our upcoming YPR Brewery Tour.

Dates and places to be announced soon!
