Mike Crane – Wisconsin Public Radio


Niagara Foundation pleased to announce a Niagara Forum with Mike Crane.

Our honored guest was Mike Crane:

Mike Crane is the Director of Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR). He joined WPR as Chief Operating Officer in 2008 and was promoted to Director in 2010. WPR started with experimental license 9XM in 1914 and has evolved to include two networks on 34 stations with more than 110 staff in seven offices around the state today. WPR has more than 50,000 members including nearly 15,000 sustainers.

Under Crane’s leadership, the station launched a Journalism Innovation Fund in 2013, supported the development of young broadcast journalists with the Lee Ester Fellowship and established partnerships with leading investigative journalism organizations. New programs, like Central Time, and the nationally recognized sense-of-place series Wisconsin Life, which is now a television series in partnership with Wisconsin Public Television, were created under his watch.
