KRVN Station Manager Tim Marshall has been named Chief Operating Officer of the Nebraska Rural Radio Association. NRRA General Manager Craig Larson made the announcement this week.
“Tim has been with the company for nearly five years. He has done an excellent job leading KRVN and now we’re asking him to oversee some of the day to day operations within the company.”
The NRRA is the only farmer and rancher owned radio group in the country. Along with flagship station KRVN in Lexington, other stations include KNEB in Scottsbluff, KTIC in West Point, KAMI in Cozad and KAWL/ Max County in York.
“I look forward to helping the company in any way that I can,” Marshall said. “Working for KRVN and the Nebraska Rural Radio Association is a privilege, and I appreciate the professionals that I work with every day.”
Marshall is a native of Eddyville and has worked in radio for nearly 40 years. Before joining KRVN he had worked in the Lincoln, Omaha and Kearney/Grand Island markets.
In recent years, the NRRA has expanded its reach, adding network affiliates in Chadron, Nebraska City, Beatrice, Fairbury, Sidney, and Omaha.
“Our mission has always been to serve agriculture,” Larson said. “By having affiliate stations carry our ag programming, we’re able to reach even more producers and consumers.”
One of the latest projects for the NRRA has been the addition of broadcast studios at Innovation Campus in Lincoln. Marshall said it’s important that the company keep expanding into new platforms.
“We are very excited about the direction of our company,” Marshall said. “We want to find more ways to present content to our audience and advertisers via video, apps, social media along with providing a great on-air product.”
