Veteran news executive Margaret Low is named CEO/GM of Boston University news/talk WBUR Boston. Low joins WBUR from “The Atlantic,” where she has served as Senior VP of the magazine’s live events division. Low succeeds Charlie Kravetz, who exited the station in June.
Low “has incredible depth of experience in understanding the editorial ecosystem that we work in here and at NPR,” interim GM Sam Fleming said in a release. “She’s also now been in the outside business world for five years, so she actually understands how that works and hasn’t been in the bubble that is public radio her entire career.”
