The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) names Katherine Arno as Vice President/Community Service Grants and Station Initiatives, effective February 17. She'll oversee the development and implementation of policy for the Community Service Grant Program, which annually distributes more than $300 million to support radio stations and public television throughout the country. Arno will also oversee initiatives to help stations improve their ability to provide strong public service to their communities.

"Kate has been instrumental in CPB's work developing and implementing policies that support and strengthen local public media stations, which are the cornerstone of America's public media system," said CPB Executive Vice President/COO Michael Levy. "Her experience as a station leader, and at CPB, will be an asset in our efforts to strengthen public media."

Arno has served for seven years as CPB's Director of Television CSG Policy and Review, where she developed and implemented CSG policies and worked extensively with grantees to support their grant compliance. Prior to joining CPB, she was a Senior Policy Associate and Senior Manager for a U.S. Department of Justice cooperative agreement at the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine.
