WCTE Staff Named to National PBS Committees
Two senior staff members of WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS were recently elected to serve on PBS national committees. In these roles, they will give WCTE and the Upper Cumberland region a voice as part of the national public media system.
WCTE Director of Content, Desirée Duncan, has been named to the PBS Digital Media Advisory Council. Members of this public television council collaborate with the national PBS Digital department to ensure that local station needs are met through products and services. Duncan shared, “As a woman of color leading the Content & Digital department at one of the smallest and mightiest PBS stations in the country, I seek to help forge the next stage of leadership within public media. As a system, we continue striving to make a difference in our world, serve our communities, and give voice to the voiceless. However, that can’t be fully achieved without strong representation from rural stations like WCTE and others across the PBS system.”
WCTE Director of Development & Marketing, Avery Hutchins, has been named to the PBS Kids Station Leadership Committee. This committee is composed of a multi-disciplinary group of station leaders within the public television system who work together and with PBS to help public television achieve its mission of serving children and families. “I was excited and honored to find out I was selected to join the PBS Kids Station Leadership Committee,” Hutchins stated. “I look forward to representing WCTE and our community on a national level.”
