The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has named Faisal Khan as Executive Director of the Next Generation Warning System, effective immediately. He will lead CPB's work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in implementing the Next Generation Warning System (NGWS) grant program to create a more resilient and secure public alerting system through the nation's public media system.

"Faisal is a leader with deep passion for emergency relief and a proven ability to provide strategic and operational planning, project management, and international grant program implementation," said CPB Senior Vice President, Innovation and System Strategies Stacey Decker. "He is well-positioned to lead CPB as it administers funding for the Next Generation Warning System, in which public television and public radio stations will use emerging technologies to deliver an enhanced public alerting system."

Khan will lead a staff of four to implement the NGWS grant program. This grant program enables CPB-qualified community service grant recipients to procure, construct and improve transmission and other public safety-related equipment, software and services, including ATSC 3.0 and comparable digital broadcast technology for radio stations. This will result in enhanced alerting and warning capabilities that serve all Americans.

Khan comes to CPB from the Islamic Relief USA Foundation, where he was executive director and implemented a program of grants serving more than 22 countries, overseeing all strategic planning, financial management and board and donor communications for the organization. Before that, he was a Regional Vice President, PSF Investments, and a financial strategy manager for KPMG.
