PBS Reno Hires Content Resource Coordinator
RENO, NV (November 16, 2023) — PBS Reno is pleased to have hired Helen Krohn for the role of Content Resource Coordinator. Krohn joined the team on November 6, 2023.
As PBS Reno Content Resource Coordinator, Krohn maintains the Content schedule and ensures that the necessary equipment, vehicles, licenses/permits, and staff resources are available to accommodate multiple requests for local productions. She works with other departments and external clients in providing quotes, data, and scheduling to meet the desired production outcomes. She is also responsible for creating and assisting in keeping metadata and related production materials catalogued so PBS Reno can effectively serve its community with in-classroom services and award-earning content.
“Since moving to the United States, PBS has been a constant companion,” Krohn said. “It has taught me with Ken Burns and American history. Sesame Street and Curious George have helped me in raising my children. Watching Downton Abbey has aided in suppressing my homesickness. Now I find myself a part of it and living it here at PBS Reno. I now have the opportunity to give back what PBS has given to me.”
Krohn earned her Bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management and operations from Northern England College of Hotel and Hospitality Sciences in Leeds, England. Most recently, Krohn served as Executive Assistant / Operations Coordinator for Provenance Hotels, where she managed calendars, events, meetings and communications, and provided executive support while coordinating cross-departmental projects.
“Helen’s experience at the Executive Assistant and Management level will be instrumental in our department as we continue to produce content that has earned PBS Reno international recognition,” said Megan Myers, PBS Reno Vice President of Content. “As we celebrate our 40th year of service, Helen’s attention to detail will allow us to grow our digital footprint while maintaining award-earning productions on our main channel.”
