Unwin Joins PRX
Cambridge, Mass., May 13, 2014 — PRX is very pleased to welcome Kathleen Unwin to PRX in the new role of Station Relations Director.
Many public radio colleagues know Kathleen as the marketing and advertising manager of Current where she built a respected reputation for superb client service, deep knowledge of public broadcasting and a sophisticated sense of publishing in a changing media environment.
“Kathleen brings a publishing mindset and experience to PRX as we forge into expanded marketing activity for programs. Kathleen brings a wealth of experience in marketing and sponsorship sales with her,” said John Barth, Managing Director.
Kathleen started in her role May 1 and will handle marketing for The Moth Radio Hour, as well as other PRX services, programs, and strategic projects.
PRX oversaw the licensing of more than 20,000 programs to stations last year. It has helped build the success of signature programs like The Moth Radio Hour, Sound Opinions, 99% Invisible, and many others. In February it launched the Radiotopia podcast network, and has recent claims to both a Peabody and a Webby.
