Maxie JacksonExecutive Director (he/him)
With more than three decades of management, content and audience development experience in radio, television, digital and live events, Jackson joined Radio Milwaukee after serving as the Chief Content Officer for New England Public Media (NEPM).
Prior to NEPM, Jackson served as a public-media consultant and leader of two national media organizations: Pacifica Foundation and National Federation of Community Broadcasters. He also served in executive roles at public radio stations WCPN, WNYC, WETA and WEAA.
"I've had the pleasure of serving a diverse portfolio of audiences and organizations, and look forward to bringing those experiences forward in my role as executive director," Jackson said. “Radio Milwaukee’s mission of championing music, arts and culture, neighborhoods and community organizations strongly aligns with my passion for using public media to celebrate the nuance and intersectionality found throughout the patchwork of communities across the nation. More directly, public service and institution building are my motivations."
