MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO moves noncommercial AAA KCMP (89.3 THE CURRENT)/NORTHFIELD-MINNEAPOLIS PD STEVE NELSON to the PD slot for its MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO NEWS statewide network. NELSON launched THE CURRENT in 2004.
"STEVE brings wide-ranging experience to this position at a time when news operations—regardless of the medium—are challenged to find fresh ways to connect with, and keep, audiences," said MPR NEWS Director CHRIS WORTHINGTON. "He mixes a creative flair with deep knowledge of the craft of radio. STEVE's touch is exactly what we were looking for."
