Educational Media Foundation (EMF) has promoted Ed Lenane to vice president of programming operations, effective immediately.
Having first joined EMF in 1977 as local program manager, Lenane now oversees the news, regional public affairs, audio production, board operations and traffic teams for the K-LOVE and Air1 radio networks.
An industry veteran, his radio career spans four decades to include roles in operations and programming as well as on-air roles in music and news formats.
“Ed’s broadcast and programming knowledge are critical to our success, and his kindness, deep faith, dependability and humility make him a pleasure to work alongside,” said Mandy Young, EMF radio group program director.
Lenane will continue to report to Jim Houser, chief content officer at EMF.
“Ed was one of the early pioneers that launched the format of Christian hit music on radio,” said Houser. “We’re fortunate to learn from his extensive experience in the industry.”
Educational Media Foundation began as a single, nonprofit radio station in 1982 and is now the parent company to K-LOVE and Air1 – the nation’s largest Christian music radio networks.
