The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has hired Letitia “Tish” King as its senior vice president of corporate communications. King most recently served as the director of the Office of Public Affairs at the Broadcasting Board of Governors.
In her new position, CPB says she will lead CPB’s communications efforts including internal and external communications, and public relations.
King has held a variety of positions in communications and government over the course of her 25-year career, the past 15 of which have been spent with the BBG. Prior to joining the BBG, she served as the acting staff director for the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, a presidentially-appointed board with oversight of the prestigious international exchange program. King joined the government in 1993 as a Presidential Management Fellow for the U.S. Information Agency on a two-year management development program. She has mentored PMFs and other students throughout her federal career.
King holds a bachelor’s degree in international relations and French from Colgate University and a master’s degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
