Kerri Hoffman appointed to Board of Directors

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Kerri Hoffman to the Board of Directors. Hoffman is the COO of PRX, the Public Radio Exchange.

Hoffman is an experienced management leader with a broad range of expertise in organizational development, financial planning and strategic planning. Hoffman has played a key role in PRX’s evolution as it expanded its scope as public radio’s first and only functional marketplace for independent producers. In recent years, Hoffman and the PRX team have made strategic forays into near adjacencies of content production and distribution.

Kerri’s front row seat, and guiding hand, as a key member of the Public Media Platform leadership, the launch of Radiotopia and related podcasting funding and distribution innovations makes her exactly the right Board member at this time,” says Jody Evans, PRPD President.

PRPD has an intense focus on creating new and expanded value for our members in the area of consumption, relevance and sustainability,” Evans continues. “Kerri has made significant contributions to public radio and the independent producer community’s ability on each of these areas. I am excited to have her take on this new role in the national leadership.

The core of all that we do in public media ties to programming – our choices, our values and our sensibilities. PRPD is not only leading our conversation but also building skills and community.” Hoffman said.
