The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has named Brendan Daly as Vice President of Communications, effective today. He will be responsible for the development and implementation of a multi-faceted communications and messaging strategy to advance awareness of public media and its value to American society.

"Brendan is a strategic communications leader with a proven ability to collaborate with internal and external stakeholders," said CPB Chief Operating Officer Michael Levy. "His skill set and experience will be valuable assets as we look to increase communication across the public media system and with the American people."

A communications leader with more than 25 years of experience, including nine years as communications director for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Daly most recently served as chief communications officer for the Recording Industry Association of America. Prior to that, he served as senior director of communications for Save the Children Action Network and as executive vice president for Ogilvy Public Relations.

"I am excited to join the team at CPB to help it achieve its vital mission to support high-quality public media programs and services," said Daly.

From 2002 to 2011, he served as chief spokesman for Pelosi, leading the communications team during her rise from minority whip to her election as the first female Speaker of the House in 2007 and during her first two terms as Speaker. He fulfilled the same strategic advisory role for several nonprofits and has held top communications jobs at the Department of Energy and for the U.S. Trade Representative and the Peace Corps. He began his career as a reporter for the Waterbury Republican-American in Connecticut and The Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Daly graduated cum laude from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts in political science.
