The board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the steward of the federal government’s investment in public broadcasting, unanimously elected Ruby Calvert as the organization’s vice chair. He will serve a one-year term.

“It is an honor to be elected vice chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, an organization whose mission I have deeply believed in for more than 40 years,” said Calvert. “I look forward to tackling difficult tasks such as building a new interconnection system for public television and radio, managing a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to develop a new statewide public safety service, and continuing to be a good steward of our federal funds .”

“I am delighted that Ruby has been elected to the position of Vice Chair,” said Wyoming PBS CEO Terry Dugas. “She is in a unique position to represent the interests of not only Wyoming PBS, but all of the smaller PBS stations at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”
