Amy Niles has been named the new President and CEO of NPR jazz station WBGO. She replaces retiring longtime President/CEO Cephas Bowles.
Board of Trustees Chairman Stephen N. Ifshin said, “Amy has the leadership skills and dedication to guide WBGO and fulfill its mission as the global voice of jazz.”
“I’m incredibly enthusiastic about the future,” said Niles. “I know that as WBGO’s reach and influence grows, we will continue to undertake and achieve great things.”
Niles joined WBGO in 2006 as senior VP/COO. Last year, the board asked Niles to take the reins as acting president/CEO.
