Brescia named PBS Board President

Robert Brescia, executive director of the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute, is now serving as president of the board of directors for Basin PBS (KPBT-TV).

The appointment was effective Sept. 28, a news release said.

Brescia has served as a Basin PBS board member for three years, joining shortly after his arrival at the JBS Public Leadership Institute.

“There is much to be gained by a close association between our two public organizations. I look forward to serving a very dedicated board and team at Basin PBS as we continue to grow and accomplish the station’s exciting strategy,” Brescia said in the release.
