Midcoast Senior College Lecture – “MAINE PUBLIC RADIO: A COMMUNITY RESOURCE”
Maine Public Radio and NPR are unlike other media outlets. Committed to serving the public good and eschewing the profit motive, this broadcaster occupies a unique position in the broadcast spectrum. Mark Vogelzang will describe the mission and the metrics which Public Radio uses to assess its effectiveness within our state. He will describe revenue streams, tax considerations, and community responsibilities.
Mark Vogelzang became President of Maine Public Radio (MPR) in January, 2012. Initially interested in broadcasting as a college student, he joined Terri Gross (Fresh Air) in Philadelphia, then progressed to station manager at several public radio stations before joining Vermont Public Radio as President.
