Boise State Radio's Kloc Named Development Professional of the Year by National Organization

Hy Kloc, associate general manager and director of development and marketing for Boise State Radio, was named Development Professional of the Year by the Public Radio Association of Development Officers recently. Kloc received the award from PRADO at the organization’s Public Radio Development/Marketing Conference in Reno, Nev., recently.

Kloc was awarded in recognition of his efforts to demonstrate excellence and leadership in development at Boise State Radio during the past 12 months and for serving as a role model for the public radio system. He was recognized for his work in underwriting, membership, individual donor development, and Boise State Radio’s newly created marketing department. Due in large part to Kloc’s efforts, Boise State Radio’s corporate underwriting revenues increased from $450,000 in fiscal year 2005-06 to a projected $500,000 in FY ’06-07.

“Hy has provided leadership and inspiration since he was hired in 2001 to manage Boise State Radio’s corporate support department. At that time, the annual underwriting revenue was $150,000,” wrote John Hess, Boise State Radio general manager, in the nomination form. “In 2007, we are projecting a fiscal year-end underwriting revenue of over $500,000, an increase of over 300 percent. … His staff credits him with inspiring and teaching by example to achieve excellence in their own performances. Hy exemplifies core values of public radio and our station.”
