Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg, the general manager of Classical 90.7FM KVNO shares that initial moment when radio first called to her and began a lifelong vocation on the airwaves, as a host behind the microphone and as a leader at a public radio station. Brownrigg also talks about the business of radio and its importance to our community, as well as her stints at a christian radio network and her personal faith journey too.
An Omaha native, Brownrigg is one of few women who hold the title of General Manager among the nation’s 55 classical radio stations. Classical KVNO began broadcasting in 1972 from what is now the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus, recently celebrating 50 years on air. Brownrigg has worked at radio stations in Omaha and across the country, including the role as president of Relevant Radio network, a Christian national radio network headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
