The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has named Katherine Arno as Vice President, Community Service Grants and Station Initiatives. The Community Service Grant Program annually distributes more than $300 million to support public television and radio stations throughout the country.
“Kate has been instrumental in CPB’s work developing and implementing policies that support and strengthen local public media stations, which are the cornerstone of America’s public media system,” said CPB Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Levy. “Her experience as a station leader, and at CPB, will be an asset in our efforts to strengthen public media.”
Arno has served for seven years as CPB’s Director of Television CSG Policy and Review. Prior to joining CPB, she was a Senior Policy Associate and Senior Manager for a U.S. Department of Justice cooperative agreement at the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine.
