Ashley Jefcoat

Digital Operations Manager

Email: ashley.jefcoat@kunc.org

As CRNC’s digital operations manager, I make sure KUNC and The Colorado Sound are as awesome online as they are on your radio. I oversee digital platforms for both stations, including websites, apps and smart speakers. I also keep track of how we're doing through analytical data analysis and research.

I’m a firm believer that public media audiences are more than just passive listeners: They are engaged, critical thinkers, and there’s no better space to make that connection than online. My mom works in software development, my dad was a radio guy, so I like to think of myself as the perfect blending of both of their work.

Before coming to Colorado, I worked at Mississippi Public Broadcasting where I was the digital manager and hosted a weekly live call-in show focused on technology. I’ve also presented at several public media conferences on social media and digital strategy alongside professionals from PBS, NPR and member stations across the country.

I am the former chair of the National Educational Telecommunications Association’s Communications Council, where I helped plan professional development for public media’s digital leaders.

When I’m not at work, I can usually be found hanging out with my wife, two cats and dog at our home in Greeley. I’m probably playing video games, cooking, reading or running a session of Dungeons & Dragons.
