BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Public Radio WBHM 90.3 FM has hired Rachel Osier Lindley as its news director.

Lindley will oversee the activities of the WBHM news team while giving voice to the North Central Alabama community the station serves. She will work extensively with on-air and online content, local, regional, and national content partners, and evolving technology.

“I’m looking forward to joining the talented staff of WBHM, and it is an honor to be able to lead an accomplished group of journalists,” says Lindley. “Across the country, public media is forming innovative collaborations with other local institutions and achieving real impact. I intend to work smartly with my colleagues to create new content partnerships that will lift WBHM to new heights.”

Lindley comes to WBHM from Marfa Public Radio in Marfa, Texas, where she was news director. Lindley played an essential role in the development of that the innovative West Texas station since its launch in 2006.

“Rachel brings with her a keen knowledge of news programming, on-air operations, and community engagement,” says General Manager Scott Hanley. “We look forward to the stories she will tell along with our award-winning news team, and the deeper connections we will build with the community in the process.”

Lindley will begin as WBHM’s news director Sept. 1, 2013.
