Katy Anderson

Programming & Operations Director

Katy manages programming operations and helps direct and produce on-air talent for 89.1 WBOI and 94.1 WBNI.   She has lived in Fort Wayne for most of her life and is a graduate of IPFW where she studied political science and journalism.  Though her interests and background in non-profits and public policy were what initially brought her to NIPR, she quickly found herself drawn to public radio programming and audience research.  Anderson is a strong believer in centering programming on listeners, and oversaw the station’s major programming changes over the past six years years. She's also helped produce award-winning, community-oriented news programming on WBOI.

This fall, 89.1 WBOI is making some exciting changes to its weekend lineup! Here's what you need to know: 

News-Sentinel

Fort Wayne’s News-Sentinel has announced its intent to transition to a fully digital product. This transition will discontinue the afternoon print edition of the paper.

Last night the transmitter for Classical 94.1 WBNI sustained some damage due to isolated storms, which is currently disrupting the signal.   The issue is being looked at by an engineer and we hope to have the signal back up and running soon. We apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, you can listen to our online stream at wbni.org or with the Classical 94.1 WBNI app on your mobile device.  Thank you for your patience.
