Nevada Public Radio welcomes Mark Vogelzang as its new President and CEO March 14. Mark recently served as Interim General Manager and CEO of Blue Ridge Public Radio based in Asheville, North Carolina and had a decade-long tenure as President and CEO of the state-wide Maine Public TV & Radio.
Mark noted that the “innovative, relevant and insightful offerings across the Nevada Public media network are indispensable services that connect and inform our citizens. This is a terrific opportunity to continue to add new resources and build even more trusted content for a diverse audience.”
Mark takes over for Jerry Nadal, who took the position on an interim basis in 2019. “What began as a 3-month assignment to stabilize the organization turned into a truly enjoyable two-and-a-half-year period of unprecedented change and growth,” said Nadal. “Being able to work alongside this amazing team to realize a collective vision for the organization has been an unexpected career highlight for me. I can’t wait to see the heights that Mark and the team take this truly beloved organization.”
Mark began his public broadcasting career at the Dordt University campus radio station. He’s a serious amateur photographer and enjoys cycling the backroads and hills from Acadia to Red Rock.
“The Board and I are confident that Mark is the right person to build on the momentum started by Jerry Nadal and his team,” said Richard Dreitzer, Board Chair, Nevada Public Radio. “Mark brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this role, and we’re lucky to have him as our next CEO.”
