Fajardo, a Florida-based public media executive with more than 30 years of industry experience, as the organization’s new president and general manager. He will succeed Michael Titterton, the station’s current and longest-serving president and general manager, who will exit the post on June 30, 2016. Fajardo will begin at HPR full-time on May 16, and make an earlier appearance during the station’s April on-air fund drive.
