Staff Profile: Nolan Ford

NSPR’s Nolan Ford is nothing if not a multitasker.

He began working for the station in 2013 as a part-time board operator hosting during All Things Considered. In the four years since, he has assumed the full-time role of music director, taken on the production of local programs Nancy’s Bookshelf and Blue Dot, and launched the station’s in-studio musical performance series, Songs From Studio C.

These duties make for a busy week, but Ford enjoys the juggling act. It forces him to be organized, he said, but within each role he gets the chance to exercise creativity.

Read more about Nolan Ford and Songs From Studio C.
