SUMMIT SERIES: Paula Kerger, PBS

Monday, June 10, 2019
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Cascade

Leading a public broadcaster is no easy feat. Juggling the dual mandates of public service and non-profit enterprise, a successful leader must have a unique toolbox of skills and strategic savvy. Clearly, as the longest-serving president and CEO of PBS in its history, Paula Kerger has all of this in spades. PBS is a behemoth public broadcaster, with nearly 350 member stations in the U.S. and an avid viewership that has propelled it to the #6 network in America under her tenure. As one of BANFF’s featured Summit Series speakers, Kerger brings her unparalleled experience to the historic Cascade Room main stage, sharing insights and anecdotes from her time at PBS and her vision for its place in the media landscape going forward.
