NPR Makes Key Internal Changes

NPR announced a “new executive structure” today to create a “shared vision and greater alignment” across all content areas. Kinsey Wilson has been promoted to the new role of Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer. He will set the direction and oversee the operations for all of NPR’s content areas: news, programming and digital media. Margaret Low Smith will permanently lead NPR News as Senior Vice President, a position she has been acting in since January 2011.

These changes are effective immediately.

The upshot (according to a release): “The new structure will allow for closer coordination of NPR’s news, digital and programming strategies and a more seamless integration of its news operations.”

Eric Nuzum will step into Smith’s former role as VP of Programming. There will also be an “expanded role” for Keith Woods, V.P. of Diversity in News & Operations. He will report directly to CEO Gary Knell. “In Kinsey and Margaret, we have two journalists, strategists and leaders with a keen understanding of the craft that distinguishes NPR – and how we must continue to innovate and evolve,” Knell said in a release.

Bill Adair: The FishbowlDC Interview

Adair Mugshot Current 2007.JPGSay hello to Bill Adair, editor of PolitiFact.com and Washington Bureau Chief for the St. Petersbug Times.

What word do you routinely misspell? exaggerrate

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? The Razr v3c Theme (but I have the phone on vibrate nearly all the time)

What time did you get up this morning? 5 a.m.

When did you last cry and why? When I saw “King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters,” a documentary about a former Boeing engineer who tries to win the world championship in Donkey Kong. I won’t spoil the ending, but I found it quite moving.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? 300

Eric Nuzum: The FishbowlDC Interview

eric_nuzum_photo_credit_gary_harwood.jpgSay hello to Eric Nuzum, a programming executive for NPR whose new book is “The Dead Travel Fast.”

What word do you routinely misspell? Nappanee. It is the name of my wife’s hometown in Indiana. Two Ns, two As, two Ps, and two Es. It should be simple, but I constantly screw it up. In all fairness (to me), while there are some very nice people, it isn’t the most memorable place in America. Nappanee is so small that the one (single screen) movie theater in town closes down for Thanksgiving weekend.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? Vibrate, though I used to be a big fan of “Ring Number Three.” Sometimes I would call myself just so I could hum along.

What time did you get up this morning? I wake up every morning at exactly 5:45 a.m. when my geriatric cat starts to paw my nose and lips until I get out of bed. Shortly after he starts pawing me, I remember that he usually visits his litter box right before coming to wake me up. That tends to get me moving pretty quickly.

When did you last cry and why? To be honest, the last time I got choked up was six weeks ago when I walked into a Barnes and Noble and saw my book, The Dead Travel Fast, sitting on the front “New Arrival” table. You see this little thing sitting there on the table and it is so impossibly small compared to everything you’ve put into it. The weirdest part of all is that you’ve slaved over this thing for years, yet sitting there in a bookstore, you could be arrested for picking it up and walking out the door. It doesn’t belong to you any more.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? Four more than I have time to answer.

What’s your favorite letter? I think I’ll go with Paul’s Letter to the Collossians. You know, the one that advises we set our minds on things above, not Earthly matters, etc… It isn’t my choice because I’m particularly religious or anything. I just remember that when I was a kid and heard this book in the Bible mentioned, I always thought of “colossal.” I imagined Paul was preaching to a group of giants or something. The concept of 40-foot Christians (especially considering that Jesus is rumored to be 900-feet tall himself) seemed pretty cool when I was eleven.

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? My eighth grade English teacher once told me I had no talent or skill as a writer and would never end up being anything other than a smart-ass. I’ve made it a point of my writing career to prove he was only half right.
