Three people have been chosen as finalists for the executive director position for Iowa Public Radio. The finalists are Debra Fraser, former chief operating officer and station manager for Houston Public Media; Myrna Johnson, executive director for the Boston Schoolyard Initiative in Boston; and William R. Reed, a former private-sector media executive and Midwest-based marketing consultant. The finalists were selected by a search committee that began a national search in April. All three finalists will visit Iowa at the end of October, and will participate in a public forum, where each will give a brief presentation and participants will have a chance to meet the candidates.
