08/23/2018

JONESBORO – Kristy Cates has been named development director for KASU-FM, the National Public Radio (NPR) member station licensed to Arkansas State University. In announcing the station’s newest staff member, station manager Mark Smith said Cates brings a wealth of experience to the position.

“We had a strong pool of applicants for this position,” Smith said. “After interviewing several very good candidates, the hiring committee and I agreed that Kristy’s training and experience were the right fit for this challenging position.”

Cates holds a bachelor’s degree in radio-television from Abilene Christian University, and a masters in communication with an emphasis in mass media from Valdosta State University. She also has many years of experience in education, teaching high school English and journalism, that will serve her well in her work at KASU and as an instructor in media at Arkansas State.

Cates serves on the Legislative Assembly for the National Communication Association, representing K-12 members for the Southern States Communication Association.  Chosen because of her years on the Georgia Scholastic Press Association Board, she began a three-year term as the executive director of the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association.  ASPA promotes scholastic journalism in the state by offering support and services to publications staffs and advisers. She is also a member of the Journalism Education Association and the Southern Interscholastic Press Association.

“I am looking forward to continuing and enhancing KASU’s fundraising efforts,” said Cates. “I am prepared to promote KASU by speaking to individuals and organizations that are interesting in supporting the various programs offered only at KASU.”

KASU is a non-profit, non-commercial, public radio station, which relies on donations from its listeners as a vital source for its operating revenue. As development director, Cates will organize and implement fundraising drives, explore new avenues of fundraising, and assist the KASU staff in promoting the station in the community and throughout the region. Those interested in having her speak to an organization should contact KASU station manager Mark Smith, at 870-972-2283.
