Larry Bennett

Community Business Advancement

Larry Bennett’s working career has been divided between sales and operations. Starting as a production worker in a walk-in freezer factory, he worked in every functional group except accounting and held positions as Western Regional Sales Manager, National Accounts Sales Manager and Operations Manager for two local manufacturing companies.

A two-year residence on the West Coast introduced Larry to community radio and he helped found KZFR in Chico, Calif., in 1990.  In addition, he spent 17 years working as a volunteer with non-commercial radio stations in California and Kansas. That passion led to his current work helping organizations throughout Central Kansas make connections to the unique group of listeners and members of Wichita Public Radio.
