  1. Good collection John, of course now, don’t forgot the article from today’s Pullman-Moscow Daily news (the local paper here in Pullman WA home of NWPR)

    WSU associate vice president’s retirement effective immediately

    Dennis L. Haarsager is leaving his post at Washington State University to become interim chief executive officer of National Public Radio.

    Haarsager has led Northwest Public Radio from his office at WSU for the last 30 years.

    Haarsager was elected chairman of the NPR Board of Directors in November. He joined the NPR board in November 2005.

    At WSU, Haarsager served as associate vice president and general manager of educational and public media. His retirement is effective immediately.

    He stated in a WSU news release that he did not seek the CEO position, but he is “honored that the NPR board of directors asked me to take it on for this interim period.”

    “NPR is a great institution and I look forward to keeping it moving forward,” Haarsager stated.

    Viji Murali, vice president for information services and chief information officer for Washington State University, wished Haarsager well.

    “He has done a tremendous job here at Washington State University for many years, and we wish him great success in this new role,” she stated in the release.

    Murali said Tony Wright, senior director of integrated media services at WSU, will assume Haarsager’s role at WSU on an interim basis.

    While at WSU, Haarsager has overseen the 13-station Northwest Public Radio network, two public television stations, the country’s most-used interactive video network and on-campus instructional technology services, according to the release.

    Prior to coming to WSU, Haarsager served as state coordinator for Idaho Public Broadcasting and as director of administration for South Dakota Public Broadcasting.

    NPR plans to conduct a national search for a permanent successor to Ken Stern, who left the CEO’s role “by mutual agreement,” according to an NPR news release.

  2. Kerry — Thanks for the link and the full article. The paper requires registration and I didn’t want to bother. But I’m going to go ahead and add the link to the list, especially since this adds yet another layer to the story.

    We love Haarsager in Alaska, so we’re sorry to see him leave WSU and take a job that’s going to eat up all of his time. Maybe he’ll remember us — someday! ;-)
