We connect them to our community, to issues that matter, and to the rich history and culture of our city and region. We bring people together by telling our shared stories and creating shared experiences on radio, online and in person.

Our new Experience Director will boldly experiment and expand the ways we connect people, to make individual and community life richer, stronger and more inclusive. The director will lead a team that designs and executes LPM events, discussions and online experiences, and manages a citywide events calendar.

The right candidate builds networks of people around shared interests and passions. The right candidate has a mission to make our city and region a connected, energizing place for everyone.

The Experience Director is on Louisville Public Media’s management team and will work with our news, music, membership, marketing and underwriting teams to increase the efficiency and impact of our events, from Waterfront Wednesdays to classical music education to Next Louisville conversations. The experience team will map the ways members and others interact with LPM and create new experiences to deepen their engagement.

The key job responsibilities are: designing and executing our experience strategy, managing the experience team, growing the use of our citywide events calendar, managing events revenue and costs, and helping expand LPM’s role as a trusted connector across all parts of the community.
