Station Manager, KPOV
Jill Mahler is the Station Manager at KPOV, in Bend, Oregon. Jill came to community radio with a background in office administration and visual arts. In 2008, she had the opportunity to combine her administrative skills with her passion for community service, when she was hired as office manager for then-fledgling LP-FM station KPOV. As KPOV grew into a full power NCE station, Jill’s knowledge and passion for community radio also grew. In 2015, she stepped into the role of Station Manager, and never looked back. Jill’s aspiration is to lead KPOV to reach its full potential as a critical part of the fabric of Central Oregon life, serving as a platform for local discourse, information and entertainment.
