RENO, NV (Oct. 4, 2021) – PBS Reno has promoted Emma Glenn to Vice President of Development. Glenn will oversee PBS Reno’s critical fundraising needs and lead a diverse and talented team of community partnership executives, development officers, and membership representatives to meet PBS Reno’s fundraising goals.

“I am thrilled to move into this new role with PBS Reno as the Vice President of Development and further support and expand PBS Reno's mission and vision,” said Glenn. “The opportunity to work alongside such a talented, driven and creative team in this larger capacity is an honor. I am looking forward to working with the community and increasing support for PBS Reno's educational outreach in classrooms across northern Nevada and our award-winning local productions.”
