Public Radio International has named Michael Isip to its board of directors.
He currently serves as chief content officer at San Francisco’s KQED public media stations and is responsible for the strategic planning and development of all content acquired, curated, produced or presented for audiences on TV, radio, online and mobile platforms, according to the press announcement. This multiplatform experience also would “be invaluable to PRI as it continues its evolution from a broadcast distributor to creator of multiplatform content that inspires people to act.”
Isip has two decades of media experience as on-air talent, an award-winning producer and a filmmaker as well as a media executive. Prior to coming to KQED, he was executive producer at KVIE Public Television in Sacramento, Calif. Isip also serves on the Boards of Pacific Islanders in Communications and POV (PBS’ documentary series), and is a senior fellow for the American Leadership Forum — Silicon Valley.
“As we build a network that brings together individuals, stations, communities and journalism to support a vibrant global society, Michael’s experience and insights will guide us,” said PRI President and CEO Alisa Miller. “I am pleased to welcome him to our board.”
