Senior Vice President, Audience & Platforms, Colorado Public Radio

Jodi joined Colorado Public Radio as senior VP of audience & platforms in January 2020. Previously, she headed the Engagement Lab at Public Radio International, focused on developing audience-first strategies throughout the organization. She also worked for 17 years at The Gannett Company/USA TODAY. Jodi has worked in a variety of areas across many disciplines, but always with a focus on innovation and engagement. Her attention to audience and her skills with digital engagement fit perfectly with public radio’s mission to deliver journalism while also effecting positive change in people’s lives.

I’m most excited to work on projects that… bring people together to solve issues, enlighten people, and/or prompt dialogue, debate, and discussion.

I’m looking for partners that can help me with… data analysis on cultural diversity.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when my #VotingBecause campaign at USA TODAY started to reach millions of people and created tons of online conversation around the importance of voting.

Innovations in my field I’m most excited to work on… are evolutions in algorithms that control just about everything on the internet.
