Get to know Alex Kim, the new KPBS Director of
Alex, tell us a little bit about yourself.
Diego is home to me and I love our city - the cultural diversity, eclectic
neighborhoods, beautiful landscapes, great Mexican food, and a vibrant craft
beer scene, just to name a few. I enjoy exploring our wonderful city with my
wife, Wendy, and two young children, Ethan and Audrey. My other interests include
playing basketball, CrossFit, running, traveling, and playing my ukulele. I
received my undergraduate degree in marketing from San Diego State University
and my masters degree in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from the
University of San Diego.
How long have you worked in the Development field?
have had the privilege of working in the nonprofit sector for more than eight
years. When I aspire to serve others, I am most fulfilled and feel a connection
to others. Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to witness the
generosity, passion, and commitment of our community in supporting many worthy
and significant causes that meet so many needs. I have served in development
roles in San Diego in higher education, social services, and pediatric health
What’s your favorite KPBS Radio/TV program?
KPBS is an organization in our community that touches so many lives and brings
into light many relevant issues affecting our local, national, and
international communities in a thoughtful, inspiring, honest, and timely manner
on various media platforms. Growing up with KPBS and now seeing my children
benefiting from the educational programming, I am excited to help advance the
mission of this important and exciting institution. I have many favorite KPBS
shows. I enjoy Midday Edition, Fresh Air, Here and Now, Savor
San Diego, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Frontline, and
when I am watching KPBS with my children - Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Wild
Kratts, and Curious George. I am looking forward to meeting the
staff and supporters of KPBS.
As the local public media station for
San Diego, KPBS strives to reflect and represent our community across all of
our platforms: radio, television, online, and mobile. The KPBS Explore Project
is designed to grow our current line-up of local program favorites like Ken
Kramer’s About San Diego, San Diego’s Historic Places, and Crossing
South, and encourage local production and digital storytelling. This May,
KPBS will debut the new Explore San Diego
shows on KPBS TV!
KPBS received 32 submissions for the
2013-2014 Explore San Diego Project. The two new programs selected are SnapShot
and Animal R&R. Both shows are in the documentary style and are
independently produced exclusively for KPBS by local experts and accomplished
filmmakers. The shows highlight the people, places, and stories unique to the
San Diego region, allowing viewers to experience new and sometimes surprising
stories along the way.
The six-part series by the production team of Janet
Nielsen, Tim Mantoani, and Chris Park, takes viewers on assignment with
professional photographer Tim Mantoani. Each 30-minute episode is an opportunity to meet unique and eclectic
San Diego personalities who offer insight into their experiences. SnapShot
will air over six weeks as part of KPBS’ Thursday night local lineup beginning
May 1 at 8:30 p.m., following new
episodes of Ken Kramer’s About San Diego.

Narrated by San Diego’s own
animal authority, Joan Embery, Animal
R&R follows the
stories of local wild animals that come into dramatic contact with people. The
stories originate from Project Wildlife, a rescue center near Old Town that
gives a second chance to injured, orphaned, and sick native wildlife. Trained
caretakers rehabilitate the
animals and release them back
into the wild (hence the title Animal R&R). The two-part special
airs on May 21 at 8:00 p.m. as part of KPBS’ life and science programming on
