Colorado Public Radio (CPR) elevates Jenny Gentry to Chief Operating Officer, overseeing the operational aspects of the public radio organization. Gentry most recently served as Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration.
Throughout her 36-year tenure with CPR, Gentry’s been instrumental in transforming the organization from a single-signal radio station to the its current statewide network.
“Jenny has provided CPR with leadership continuity through every phase of growth and change” CPR President Stewart Vanderwilt said in a release. “Whether this was helping KCFR establish itself as an independent licensee, or qualifying the organization (and other public broadcasters) for tax-exempt bonds and creating Colorado Public Radio, she has a powerful combination of mission focus and business acumen to be one of top leaders in public media.”
