Everything was handled professionally and the knowledge and expertise of the staff were evident and extremely helpful. The interviews of the board and senior staff beforehand helped to instill confidence in Tom and really set the tone for the entire process.

Livingston Associates incorporated in 1997. Our firm was first to provide comprehensive search services to public radio stations. Our initial major search was for Executive Director of the Public Radio Program Director's Association. Since then, we've conducted more than 140 searches for Public Media organizations. We have developed the leading resume database for public media positions. Our full-search process has led to powerful outcomes in major searches across the country..
We have provided a range of strategic services, from assessments for national programs through full business and strategic plans (see the article on our strategic planning work with Alaska Public Media on our home page).
Livingston Associates has also participated in and led a number of landmark strategic studies for public radio, including several related to joint licensee operation and cross-promotion.
