He is considering candidates from both inside and outside the public broadcasting field at roughly the same compensation as Craigie. But board chairman Rogers says the compensation for the prospective KERA president has not yet been determined.

Cheryl Craigie is leaving her lucrative position as president and CEO of KERA to pursue a career as a writer.

For the staff at KERA, Craigie's announcement came as a surprise. Sylvia Komatsu, the vice president of television programming who recently picked up an Emmy for her documentary U.S.-Mexican American War, says: "We're really sorry that she is leaving. But we're pleased that she is following her heart."
