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.

Throughout today, intermittent outages may occur on 89.1 WBOI.  These outages are necessary as our engineers work to repair the damage to our transmitter from last week's power surge.  Our HD transmitter is still working so you can listen to us online at wboi.org or through the free NIPR app for your smartphone or tablet.   Thank you so much for patience! We hope to have these issues resolved this weekend.
