Gary Knell, President and CEO, National Public Radio
Introduction by John Boland, President and CEO, KQED San Francisco
With 900 stations around the USA, National Public Radio is one of the country's most iconic news organizations. During Knell's tenure at the helm, NPR has thrived in a rapidly changing media environment due to leveraging the organization's extensive network of member stations, cross-platform journalism and cultural programming, philanthropic and corporate underwriting support, and new audiences to NPR's distinct offerings. Knell was formerly the CEO of Sesame Workshop and served in several other global multi-media companies. As an attorney, he served as a former counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary and Governmental Affairs Committees in Washington, D.C., and worked in the California State Legislature and Governor's Office.
