The Rapid City Journal tells us:
Busch served as executive director for SDPB from 1960 to 1984. He was first appointed director of KUSD-AM in 1960 and in 1961 oversaw the establishment of KUSD-TV, the first educational television station in the state and flagship station of SDPB. During his tenure, he participated in the early development of organizations that eventually became Public Broadcasting System and National Public Radio. He served on the PBS Board of Directors from 1973-1979 and retired from SDPB in 1984.In 2001, after it had already become Bill Janklow's idea of public radio, Busch was in the middle of reading Kristin Lavransdatter when a brash jazz aficionado named Jim Clark burst in and started a new show.
