On the move: Ju-Don Marshall named WFAE’s next president and CEO


Ju-Don Marshall was named president and CEO of WFAE, the Charlotte-based public radio station.

The WFAE Board of Directors voted unanimously to promote Marshall “based on her performance to date at WFAE, her vision for its future and her national reputation,” WFAE Board Chair Chris Cicoletti said in a statement. 

Marshall is the first person of color to lead the station and assumes her role following the resignation of Joe O’Connor last month.

Marshall said she was “excited” and “humbled” to learn of her promotion last week. She has spent the vast majority of her time at WFAE on the content team but looks forward to contributing to the operational side.

“This opportunity to focus on the revenue side of what we are and our long-term sustainability is a privilege,” she told QCity Metro. 

In the new position, she also plans to continue building relationships with local media partners and the community.
