Two Members of PBS Reno Senior Leadership Join PBS Advisory Councils and Committees


Megan Myers: PBS Reno Vice President of Content
Emma Glenn: PBS Reno Vice President of Development

RENO, NV (FEB 1, 2023)Two members of PBS Reno’s senior management team will serve on PBS Advisory Councils and Committees starting in 2023.

Megan Myers, PBS Reno Vice President of Content, will serve on the PBS Programming Advisory Council (PAC).

Emma Glenn, PBS Reno Vice President of Development, will serve on the PBS Development Advisory Committee (DAC).

PBS Advisory Councils and Committees are organized to advise and liaise between stations and PBS departments. Several departments at PBS collaborate with these groups to test products and tools, and provide a state perspective on new initiatives, training programs, and services. Members of these councils and committees come from stations or outside groups, and are sometimes recommended by former members, station leaders, or PBS staff.

Myers joined PBS Reno in 2003 in Master Control and was promoted to Vice President of Content in 2017. Having worked her way up via a variety of departments, Myers has developed a deep understanding of the station’s mission, brand, standards, viewing habits, content, and the many more elements that make PBS Reno a valued and trusted organization in the region. Myers is thrilled to join the PBS Programming Advisory Council (PAC), which is comprised of a group of leaders within the PBS member station system who manage the local and national content experience for local communities. The members act as advocates for station program needs, collaborate on improving system-wide programming capabilities, and provide guidance to PBS Programming on content, strategy, and services for the system.

“I am excited to play a part in decision-making for PBS programming and sharing our local proven strategies for promotions and scheduling with my PBS colleagues and learning other best practices from them,” said Myers. “I look forward to gleaning information from others and from PBS that will help not just PBS Reno thrive, but the system as well. It is an honor to sit among such an intelligent group of individuals who will help mold the future of public broadcasting.”

Glenn joined PBS Reno in 2018 as Grant Coordinator and was promoted to Vice President of Development in 2021. Glenn leads and coordinates all aspects of station fundraising, including major donor programs, membership, grants, foundation giving, corporate development and special fundraising events and campaigns. Glenn has secured more than $4 million in grants for PBS Reno and successfully leads the station’s biggest annual fundraiser, the Spotlight Awards and Auction. Glenn is excited to join the Development Advisory Committee (DAC), the group of public television professionals whose guidance helps form the fundraising goals and strategies of PBS Station Services. These goals and strategies serve as the foundation for achieving the shared vision of a financially sustainable and thriving public media service for all Americans.

“It is an honor to have been selected to join the PBS Development Advisory Committee,” said Glenn. “I am looking forward to working with other PBS stations to play an integral role in the development of PBS Fundraising Strategies across the PBS system. I am very proud to be one of three PBS Reno staff members to represent our station on a national level.”

Myers and Glenn will each serve in a volunteer capacity for a two-year term and may elect for an additional year of service pending approval by PBS Programming and PBS Fundraising Strategy respectively.

“We are proud of our team members who not only demonstrate leadership with our station in our region, but nationally as well,” said Kurt Mische, PBS Reno President and CEO. “The 340 PBS member stations nationwide will benefit from Emma and Megan’s wise guidance and counsel.”
