NPR CEO Jarl Mohn Announces New Role and $10M Gift
NPR's chief executive, Jarl Mohn, announced this week that he will step aside next June at the end of his five-year term. At that time he will take on a newly created position leading a new fundraising drive ahead of NPR's 50th anniversary in 2020. Mohn announced that he and his wife, Pamela, will contribute $10 million toward the effort.
Mohn arrived at NPR in 2014 with decades of experience as a broadcast executive and digital media investor, with stints at MTV, VH1, and E! cable networks. His tenure has been marked by significant growth in NPR's radio and digital audiences, along with notable financial gains and some controversy.
