Dan Skinner
Executive Director and General Manager

Dan Skinner

Skinner brings with him 32 years of experience in all aspects of public radio, including more than 20 years as a general manager, and in-depth knowledge of public-radio operations in university settings. He has a strong track record in fundraising, strategic planning, programming and community outreach.

Skinner served as president and general manager of Texas Public Radio (TPR) for more than six years. Based in San Antonio, TPR operates KSTX FM, an award-winning news and information station; KPAC FM, a classical music station; and KTXI FM, a news and classical music station in the Texas Hill Country. Previously, he was department head and general manager of Purdue University’s WBAA AM & FM (1992-2006); program manager and then manager of internal operations and programming for Ball State University’s WBST (1987-1992); and operations manager and then program director for Hutchinson Community College’s KHCC (1980-1987).

Skinner is a longtime advocate for public radio. He has been a member of Public Radio in Mid-America (PRIMA) since 1995 and is its current vice president. The organization serves as a forum on issues in public radio, advances the public radio industry and its services, and offers numerous professional-development opportunities. He was also vice chair of the Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations, a statewide consortium of public television and radio stations, and served on its executive committee.

Throughout his career, Skinner has been active in cultural and community organizations, including the Cultural Alliance of San Antonio, the World Affairs Council of San Antonio, the Tippecanoe Arts Federation and the Civic Theatre in Lafayette, Ind.

The Kansas native holds a bachelor’s degree in general studies with a focus on management from Wichita State University and a master’s degree in executive development for public service from Ball State University.
