North State Public Radio announces new general manager

On Oct. 5, Beth Lamberson will take over as general manager of North State Public Radio to oversee the station's news, engineering, business and fundraising operations.

Lamberson worked as general manager and development director for KSUT Public Radio in Durango, Colo., for 18 years and holds a master's degree in political science from the University of Colorado at Denver. Her appointment comes about a year after former GM Brian Terhorst retired to address ongoing medical issues, said Marc Albert, a reporter for NSPR.

To fill the void, Stephen Cummins, director of public events at Chico State, served as interim general manager, according to a university press release.

“I know North State Public Radio is a true amenity for the region and I am proud to be joining the team,” Lamberson said.
