KPOV Hires New Development Director Samantha Corti

KPOV 88.9 FM has hired Samantha Corti as the radio station’s new Development Director. She replaces Bruce Morris, who was promoted to Station Manager following the retirement of former Station Manager Jill Mahler in mid-September.

Corti has 10 years of nonprofit experience, specializing in fundraising and event support. She is originally from New Hampshire and has spent the past six years in northern California where she focused on stewarding major individual and business donors to create sustaining relationships.

In her last job, Corti was the first person hired at a new nonprofit, where she created a development strategy from the ground up and organized several events and major donor campaigns in the first year of operation.

“We are excited about Sam joining our staff,” said KPOV Station Manager Bruce Morris. “She brings a wealth of fundraising experience to KPOV and has hit the ground running as we head into our Fall Membership Drive, which from October 16th through 24th.”

Corti, who prefers “Sam” to Samantha, is “thrilled to join the KPOV team.” She enjoys skiing and backpacking, and looks forward to settling in Central Oregon with her husband John and her Husky Kylo Ren.
