Reception with New Colorado Public Radio President, Stewart Vanderwilt

Yale alum and Colorado Public Radio board member, Michael Dowling ’74 MFS ’82 MPPM ’82, invites CYA members to a private reception to meet Stewart Vanderwilt, CPR’s dynamic new CEO, on Thursday March 14th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  Vanderwilt is a national public media leader who joined Colorado Public Radio in July 2018 after a successful 18-year tenure as the head of award-winning news and music stations in Austin, Texas. At a time when news outlets are slashing staff, Vanderwilt has a vision for CPR that Yalies will want to know about, and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.

Michael says, “I served on the search committee that hired Stewart from among a very strong group of national candidates.  He is CPR’s first new leader in 40 years and is making many forward-looking changes to our programming line-up and to increase news reporting and production capabilities.  Stewart is deeply committed to community engagement and is reaching out to many listeners and leaders during his first year in Colorado.  He is a thoughtful and dynamic executive with a passionate commitment to public media–you will enjoy meeting him!”

The event is free, but attendance is limited to 35 CYA members and guests (up to one guest per member).  Please RSVP to Stephanie Grilli:  Shortly before the event, Michael’s address will be shared with those on the final attendance list. Drinks and light bites will be served.
