Classical 90.7 KVNO, Omaha’s home for classical music, is proud to announce veteran radio host, music director and program director Sherry Brownrigg as its next general manager.
With her promotion, Brownrigg, an Omaha native who has served as KVNO station manager since 2020, will be among few women general managers of classical stations in the country and the only woman to serve as a radio general manager in Omaha. She begins the role July 1.
“As a lifelong listener and supporter of classical music who has spent most of my career behind the microphone or behind the scenes of radio stations, I’m thrilled to take on this new leadership role at KVNO,” Brownrigg said. “KVNO’s promise is to elevate life and create community through timeless music and timely information, and we’ll continue to deliver on that promise as we champion classical radio through new avenues and with new audiences.”
One of her key priorities will be continuing to ensure that classical music is accessible to everyone in the Omaha metro. Delivering on that mission will include creating programming that celebrates diverse composers and musicians, getting instruments into the hands of young people and publishing human interest features and a robust online calendar to celebrate the Omaha metro’s arts and culture scene.
Her storied radio career has included stops at Omaha stations KVSS and a 14-year stint at LITE 96.1, where she worked as promotions director, music director and assistant program director. While at LITE, Brownrigg was honored as the Billboard Music Director of the Year. She previously served as president of Relevant Radio network, a national radio network headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
