Gary Knell is the new President of National Public Radio who starts this week. Station Managers from around the country  have had several conference calls and other opportunities to get to know Gary and we’re feeling optimistic that he’ll be able to lead us into the next–and successful–chapter in public radio.

While it’s hard for one person to talk to all 30 Million public radio listeners, Gary has shown a strong desire to understand everyone’s concerns about NPR’s past, present and future.

Today, Gary is hosting a Twitter chat 12/1 3 p.m. ET to respond to listener questions. Tweet your questions to @NPRgaryknell with #nprCEO.  You can see Gary’s bio and other information here.

WTMD is an NPR Member Station and we’re excited about the future of the America’s most important news and cultural media organization.
