Peace Accord In JPR Struggle With SOU

By Jim McCoy Tue 28th August NewsJefferson Public RadioSouthern Oregon University

A peace accord has been reached in the battle for control of Jefferson Public Radio, which broadcasts in Southern Oregon and Northern California. The Mail Tribune reports the parties announced Monday in Medford that Southern Oregon University will take control of all 22 radio stations and create a separate fundraising arm for other projects.

At the height of the battle last June, the university fired Ron Kramer as executive director of JPR, and he quit as head of the fundraising arm. He had led the operation since 1974, and he had embarked on an ambitious fundraising campaign to restore an old movie theater and build a headquarters in Medford.

An audit questioned those dual roles, and it warned the fundraising put the university at financial risk.
