Florence Hernandez-Ramos, Executive Director
Flo has been selected to lead the work of a newly-formed consortium that will advocate for the inclusion of Latinos and Latino programming throughout the nation's public radio system.
The selection of Hernández-Ramos, who was a founding member of the Latino Public Radio Consortium (LPRC), brings to the helm of the nascent organization a veteran public broadcaster with broad management experience and a solid track record in promoting programming diversity.
“Flo Hernández-Ramos has deep knowledge of our public broadcasting system, and shares our passion for seeing public radio fulfill its original mission of serving communities often left out of the public discourse,” said Hugo Morales, also a founding member of the LPRC and Executive Director of Radio Bilingue, the Latino public radio network.
In 1983, Hernández-Ramos helped found and for more than 23 years she was President and CEO of KUVO, nationally recognized as the Major Market Jazz Station of 2005 and 2006. Last year, she left KUVO and founded Sol Project Management whose primary work is to strengthen non-profit organizations.
In her capacity as Executive Director, Hernández-Ramos will lead efforts to encourage National Public Radio organizations and individual stations in large and small markets to acknowledge in their hiring, training, promotion and programming the extraordinary growth of the nation's Latino population.
