A new president has been named for the ETV public broadcasting network.
Linda OBryon was selected by the ETV Commission on Wednesday. OBryon is the former chief of content officer at KQED/Northern California Public Broadcasting in San Francisco, the South Carolina network announced in a press release Thursday.
During her tenure, the public broadcasting network launched the radio series California Money and The Do List. AT KQED, OBryon oversaw a team of television and radio producers and other personnel at three television stations and two radio stations.
Recently OBryon managed initiatives on broadcast and the Web for the 2008 elections and current issues such as the mortgage crisis, immigration and climate change. She also is a founding executive editor of PBS Nightly Business Report, which debuted in 1979.
She received an Emmy in 2009 for lifetime achievement in business and financial reporting. In June, OBryon also was named one of the most influential women in the Bay Area by San Francisco Business Times.
