PBS Hires Diversity Executive

PBS tapped Haydee Rodriguez for the newly created and temporary post of director of its PBS Diversity Initiative.

It is a one-year posting for Rodriguez, who comes to public broadcasting from the Maryland Governor's Commission on Hispanic Affairs, where she is executive director.

She will be charged with drawing up a plan for encouraging diversity throughout public TV. Implementing the plan will be up to the PBS board of directors’ diversity task force, which is already overseeing a minority management-development program.
