SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The CEO of Iowa Public Radio was fired on Tuesday.

Douglas West, the vice head of the IPR Board of Directors, said CEO Mary Grace Herrington was “no longer with the organization.”

West said the vote was 6-1 in favor of her dismissal.

The lone no vote was Mark Braun, the Univesity of Iowa interim vice president for Strategic Commutations, who said he was new to the board and didn’t have enough information to vote for termination.

West also said listeners should not expect any changes in programming, and the board’s goal is to fill Herrington’s and other vacancies in a few months.
