The GM represents the station to the local community and seeks opportunities for collaboration with other public radio stations and local non-profits. The GM reports to a member-elected Board of Directors, prepares information necessary for their informed policy decisions, and implements the board's policies and strategic plan.  The GM keeps KTNA up-to-date with changes and trends in technology, media, and public broadcasting as the public media industry continues to evolve.

A full position profile is available at ktna.org/GeneralManager. This is a full-time, exempt position. Salary $50,000 to 60,000 based on experience. Benefits include a generous paid leave package, professional development, initial memberships in local arts and recreation organizations, and values-driven work. 

KTNA is community-supported public radio for the Upper Susitna Valley. KTNA presents a wide variety of programming twenty-four hours every day, drawing from National Public Radio, Alaska Public Radio Network, and other national and independent program distributors.

We have a dedicated corps of volunteers who produce music shows and anchor three newscasts each weekday.  KTNA’s reach is both local through our broadcast and events, and worldwide with multiple online platforms.

The station is located in downtown Talkeetna near restaurants and shopping.
