Lamberson Named General Manager for North State Public Radio

Beth Lamberson, former general manager of KSUT Public Radio in Durango, Colorado, is the new general manager of North State Public Radio (NSPR). She began her new position Oct. 5.

NSPR—which includes stations KCHO Chico and KFPR Redding—is licensed to the CSU, Chico Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit auxiliary to CSU, Chico.

Stephen Cummins, director of University Public Events, has served as interim general manager prior to Lamberson’s hiring. “We are very excited to have Beth join our NSPR team,” he said. “She is a very experienced and talented public radio professional, and I’m sure our great staff, volunteers, and listeners will enjoy getting to know Beth.”

Lamberson worked at KSUT Public Radio for 18 years in the positions of general manager and development director. KSUT serves the Four Corners region including the communities of Durango and Farmington, New Mexico, as well as the Southern Ute Indian Tribe.

Since 2010, Lamberson has also headed Lamberson Capital, a public relations, fundraising, and event management firm based in Durango. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Utah State University and has a master’s degree in political science from the University of Colorado at Denver.

“I know North State Public Radio is a true amenity for the region, and I am proud to be joining the team,” said Lamberson. “Getting to know the supporters in the all of the communities the station serves is a priority. I know the future for NSPR and its listeners is ripe with opportunities."

In her new role, Lamberson will oversee all operations of the station including news, engineering, business, and fundraising.
