Public Radio International has a new leader. The organization promoted Alisa Miller to become PRI's president and CEO. Miller had previously served as senior vice president of the PRI Content Group.
She replaces Steve Salyer, who left the organization last fall to become president and CEO of the Salzburg Seminar, based in Middlebury, Vt., and in Salzburg, Austria. Salyer led the public radio program distributor for 17 years.
PRI Board Chairman Douglas Carlston said Miller, “combines an entrepreneurial approach, technological savvy, and partnership skills with a strong commitment to public broadcasting. After a number of months spent reviewing some exceptional candidates, it was clear that she was the person to take PRI to new levels of leadership and innovation.”
Miller became senior vice president and head of PRI Content in 2004, overseeing the development, acquisition, and production of PRI content and creating new partnerships for the organization. She helped create American Public Radio LLC, a partnership of PRI, Chicago Public Radio, WGBH Radio Boston, and New York Public Radio, that manages the operation of three content streams for satellite broadcast. She joined PRI in 2001 as senior vice president and director of PRI Channels, developing new distribution and business opportunities and working closely with PRI subsidiary and Web services provider Public Interactive.
