Sarah Jane Crespo

Director of Community Engagement

Sarah Jane Crespo is the Director of Community Engagement at KMUW. She has worked at KMUW since 2010 in a variety of functions, from on-air to marketing, membership, and accounting. Crespo believes that public radio should empower listeners to take part in making their community the best it can be.

In her daily work, she leads the engagement department and plans and manages events such as Media Circus, Literary Feast and listener appreciation events. She is the creator and host of the monthly community conversation, Engage ICT (now in its seventh year) and has recently launched a weekly Engage ICT Mini series. As part of Engage ICT, Sarah Jane’s work won two first place awards in 2021 from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters for the special program OneSmall Step: Courageous Political Conversations and the public affairs program 1A’s Friday News Roundup: Wichita Edition. She also co-produced the public affairs program Kansas Women In Politics And The GOP, which was awarded honorable mention in 2020.

Since 2020, Sarah Jane has worked as a facilitator of discussions that improve Kansan’s lives and bridge ideological divides through her work with StoryCorp’s One Small Step and the Kansas Leadership Center’s Beat the Virus project. Sarah Jane has been an avid listener since her college days at Wichita State University.
