Harris Corporation’s Broadcast Communications Division has announced that Hal Kneller, manager of public radio initiatives, has been assigned additional strategic marketing responsibilities for Harris’ Radio Broadcast Systems business unit. Kneller will continue to represent Harris for National Public Radio (NPR) and public radio projects while also providing leadership in marketing strategy for the company’s radio business. Based in Punta Gorda, Fla., he will continue to report to Roland Eid, director, North American sales and marketing.
Kneller rejoined Harris in 2002 as radio district sales manager for Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, with a focus on helping companies make the HD Radio transition. He was promoted to manager, public radio initiatives in March 2004, working directly with NPR and its member stations and other public radio providers, including state networks. He was instrumental in continuing Harris’ partnership with NPR and Kenwood in “The Tomorrow Radio Project” and its extensions, now known as multicasting, which tested supplementary channel programming in HD Radio. He is also Harris’ liaison between the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program.
