Introduction by John Boland, President and CEO, KQED San Francisco

With 900 stations around the USA, National Public Radio is one of the country's most iconic news organizations. During Knell's tenure at the helm, NPR has thrived due to cross-platform journalism and cultural programming, has found new avenues of philanthropic and corporate underwriting support, and has attracted growing audiences to NPR's distinct offerings. Knell was formerly the CEO of Sesame Workshop and served in several other global multi-media companies. As an attorney, he served as a former counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary and Governmental Affairs Committees in Washington, D.C., and worked in the California State Legislature and Governor's Office.
