Succession Planning in Community Media

No matter its size, every community radio station has to think about change. Nonprofit organizations may need to find replacements for longtime managers or do emergency succession planning.

The best station leaders want to leave a station positioned to continue good work, and to do even better, when they’re gone. But how exactly does this transition happen?

NFCB recently hosted a webinar on leadership change. When a community media organization loses its key people, the transition can be tough to weather. Sometimes a station’s identity is wrapped up in how this leader is perceived by the public, as well as how they shape the organization’s culture internally. Without a thoughtful and organized process for new leadership, even the most visionary station can be left floundering.

This webinar is available now to member organizations in the Solution Center. If your radio station is not yet a member, inquire today about membership.
