Maryfrances Evans

Maryfrances Evans - Executive Director

  Maryfrances is a proud Des Moines native who built her television career as a producer/director for CBS affiliate KCCI. She logged over 26 years at KCCI, growing through the ranks from entry-level assistant to newscast director to management.

  In 2006, Evans realized her greatest dream through the adoptions of infant daughters and left KCCI to focus on parenting. She rejoined the fulltime professional world as Executive Director of IRIS in 2010, finding a perfect fit in the technical, nonprofit and radio reading service communities.

  Evans served on the FCC’s Video Programming Accessibility Advisory Committee in 2011 and graduated from the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute in 2012. She currently serves as President of the International Association of Audio Information Services (IAAIS) Board of Directors and the Durand Heritage Foundation Board of Directors.
