The board for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty appointed vice president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer John Giambalvo and editor-in-chief for programming Nenad Pejic as interim managers of the broadcaster.
The change became effective on March 2, following the departure of Kevin Klose as president and chief executive, and remains in effect until a new president is appointed. The RFE/RL board consists of all of the members of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. We recently reported on the departure of Klose.
Giambalvo joined RFE/RL as deputy CFO in 2009, after five years on the BBG staff as policy and program coordinator.
Pejic, who was named editor-in-chief in December 2013, joined RFE/RL in 1993 as the first director of RFE/RL’s Balkan Service. Prior to that, Pejic held various positions with Sarajevo Television including head of the news department, Belgrade correspondent and program director.
The board has a search underway for a new RFE/RL president.
