Coming in October: An Evening with the President of PBS: Paula Kerger
Paula Kerger is President and CEO of PBS, the nation’s largest non-commercial media organization with more than 350 member stations throughout the country. Often considered one of television’s most powerful women, Kerger has ushered in over60 Emmys to the station since taking over in 2006.
She has transformed the station with her commitments to the arts, news and public affairs, high-quality content for education, diversity, and the use of new technology to bring public media into the lives of all Americans. Under her leadership, PBS has expanded its audiences across genres and platforms, and has introduced new primetime science and arts series, acclaimed new children’s programming, and blockbuster dramatic series such as the pop-culture phenomenon “Downton Abbey.”
Kerger is regularly included in The Hollywood Reporter’s “Women in Entertainment Power 100” and has received multiple other awards and recognitions. Her innovative, genuine, and passionate approach shines through in her captivating leadership style and initiatives.
