Klose To Step Down As NPR Chief

NPR president and CEO Kevin Klose will step down as CEO. Ken Stern will replace him. “Klose has held the top job at NPR since late 1998, and has presided over strong growth in NPR’s annual funding, as well as increases in its audience and newsroom staff. During that time, the number of people listening to NPR’s programs doubled, to about 26 million per week, and its annual budget more than doubled, to $167 million.”
