After a national search, Stephen Koranda has been selected to lead the Kansas News Service as its new managing editor. Koranda brings nearly 20 years of public media experience to the job, including two years as KNS news editor.

Prior to his appointment as news editor for KNS, Koranda served for 12 years as the Statehouse Bureau Chief at Kansas Public Radio, one of the KNS member stations.

“I’m really proud of the journalism we produce and the work culture we have at the KNS. A lot of the credit for our quality goes to our team of reporters,” Koranda says. “I hope I can help the KNS continue to advance as we add new reporters in the coming months.”

Besides his extensive knowledge of Kansas and its politics, Stephen brings additional years of public radio experience as a reporter for Mississippi Public Broadcasting and a host, board operator and daily talk show producer for Iowa Public Radio.
