The board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) unanimously re-elected Bruce Ramer as Chair and elected Laura Gore Ross as Vice Chair. Both will serve one-year terms.

Ramer is an attorney and partner at Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown, a firm specializing in entertainment and media matters, and was named one of the top 100 lawyers in California. Ross was appointed to the CPB board by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Senate in May, 2018. She's a retired attorney who served eight years as Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the State of New York.

"It's an honor and a privilege to work with my fellow board members, CPB's leadership and staff, and our public media colleagues in communities across the country. I am so proud of the work of public media stations around the country, and that of PBS, NPR, and CPB," said Ramer. "More than ever, our nation needs a source of trusted journalism, quality educational content, and civil discourse and dialogue. Public media continues to be the source Americans trust most."

"I want to second Bruce's statement of commitment to the work of CPB and support of activities of public media. As a result of our combined efforts, Americans of all backgrounds support the content and services of public media," added Ross. "I also want to thank my fellow board members for their dedicated service to this board and to public media."
