Welcome, New KPTZ Board Member Ethan Raup

KPTZ welcomes Ethan Raup to the station’s Board of Directors. Ethan is currently Chief Operating Officer at KEXP in Seattle, where he has worked since 2014. During that time, he has been involved in guiding the station’s growth and cultural evolution, working to invest more in staff and active involvement in KEXP’s staff-driven Racial and Gender Equity initiatives. Prior to KEXP, Ethan served as Director of Policy and Operations for Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn. Ethan and his wife, Tess, are transitioning to become more active and permanent members of the Port Townsend community, with Tess working since May of 2021 at Northwind Art. 

Ethan joins a board rich in talent, experience and commitment. It includes members with backgrounds in finance, law, public administration, design, information technology, and non-profit and radio management. As of January 2022, KPTZ’s Board has transitioned to new leadership, with Dominic Svornich taking over from long-time President Robert Ambrose.  Robert will continue his oversight of our move to new studios in Fort Worden Building 305.
