Robert Leja

Director of Corporate Support and Marketing

I first became a fan of public radio as a journalism student at Boston University, where I spent 2 years as a work-study student at WBUR.  I moved to Colorado in 1990, and KUNC was the first Colorado station I found while scanning the dial as I drove across the state line.  I've been a listener ever since.

I'm excited to join KUNC's staff after nearly 10 years experience in commercial radio and other media in Northern Colorado, and after years of being a KUNC member. While working for competing media, I'd always marveled at KUNC's ability to attract such a large listening audience-- not to mention great listener support--by providing 1st class programming.  And I look forward to being part of KUNC's continued growth in the future!
