KRVS gets Divine intervention

by Walter Pierce

Uber-talented singer-songwriter Johanna Divine has been named sales director at the NPR affiliate.

Singer-songwriter Johanna Divine has joined KRVS as the public radio station's new sales director. No stranger to Radio Acadie, Divine has hosted an Americana music program on the station - when she's not touring and releasing records of her own.

According to James Hebert, the station's operations manager, Divine will help coordinate underwriting opportunities and partnerships for local businesses as well as spearhead new sales and marketing ventures. Hebert adds that the station plans to hire a new general manager to replace longtime GM Dave Spizale, who retired nearly two years ago. The station is currently under the interim leadership of Tom Pears.
