Fleishmann in new NPR post

Pubcaster creates CFO job, hires PBS vet

WASHINGTON — Going someplace it’s never been before, National Public Radio has created the position of chief financial officer and hired PBS veteran Amy Fleishman to fill it beginning Sept. 14. Her responsibilities will include developing strategies to maximize NPR’s finances and investment opportunities.

“NPR makes a difference in people’s lives,” said Fleishman. “I couldn’t be happier.” She’ll report to CEO Peter Jablow, who’s also been serving as NPR’s acting president since Aug. 1, as NPR conducts its executive search for a new prexy.

NPR serves 13 million Americans every week via its 600 member stations, with additional distribution to international and military listeners through NPR Worldwide and American Forces Network, respectively.

Fleishman joins NPR from the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington, where she served as its chief operating officer. Previously she spent eight years at PBS, rising from senior VP to treasurer to CFO.
