The News Director of WHQR Public Radio is head of the News Department and will supervise the station’s news coverage in all aspects of media. Together with the Program Manager and Station Manager, the News Director will determine News Department policy in light of the station’s overall mission, and ensure that news offerings reflect the highest standards of audio production, journalistic ethics and public service using NPR’s best practices as a model.
