UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA noncommercial WUNC (NORTH CAROLINA PUBLIC RADIO)/CHAPEL HILL GM JOAN SIEFERT ROSE is exiting the station to join the COUNCIL FOR ENTERPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT as President, starting in AUGUST.
ROSE, who previously served as PD at the UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN's MICHIGAN RADIO and as a news anchor/reporter at WPTF-A/RALEIGH, WBT-A/CHARLOTTE and WJR-A/DETROIT, has been with WUNC since 2001 and replaces MONICA DOSS, who is retiring TOMORROW after 22 years at CED. NCPR COO BOB LEVIN will take over ROSE's GM duties on an interim basis while the station searches for a permanent replacement.
"I am excited about this opportunity to take an important organization to the next level," said ROSE. "The RESEARCH TRIANGLE benefits from a robust climate for business innovation, and CED has been at the center of it for nearly 25 years. This is the perfect time to look ahead to the next 25 years promoting and expanding entrepreneurship in our region."
