National Public Radio Announces Executive Changes

The president and CEO of NPR is stepping down after less than two years to take a similar position at the National Geographic Society, the public radio organization's board of directors announced. Gary Knell said he plans to stay on the job at National Public Radio until November while the board works to find a successor, serving out most, if not all, of his initial contract. Knell, who spent 11 years as CEO of Sesame Workshop, took over NPR in December 2011 after a difficult period. He succeeded Vivian Schiller, who resigned under pressure after a former NPR fundraiser was caught on camera calling the tea party racist. The episode led some conservatives to call for an end to federal funding for NPR, which receives some grant money from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Its member stations also get CPB funding.
