Molly Nicklin

Membership Manager

I started my role as membership manager at KIOS in April 2007.  I work with all things membership, including pledge drives, mailings, thank you letters, newsletters, and member events.  It is a very rewarding job, and I am constantly in awe of the dedication of our volunteers and members.

I got my start in public radio in the membership department at KVNO in Omaha.  Prior to that, I held a variety of clerical jobs and earned a B.A. in Art from Millikin University.  In my spare time, I enjoy painting, learning about new things (often by listening to KIOS!), traveling, and spending time with friends, family, my partner Luke, and our two cats.

I always appreciate hearing from listeners and members, so if you have any ideas for improvements for the membership department, or if you'd just like to say hi, please don't hesitate to get in touch.  Thank you!

KIOS cuts spring pledge drive in HALF...

This spring, the KIOS pledge drive will be just 3 ½ days - half the length of our usual week-long drive. 

That means more uninterrupted programming for you to enjoy.  But in order for this to work, we need your help...  The success of this shortened pledge drive experiment depends on raising a significant part of the $150,000 spring goal before the drive begins on April 25th.  You can help by making your pledge today!
