Sarah Frank, a veteran TV programming exec, has joined public station Thirteen/WNET in New York as VP and director of education.

She will oversee all educational activities, including the Kravis Multimedia Education Center and the National Teacher Training Institute, for the nation’s flagship pubcaster.

“With 25 years of management experience in media and education, Sarah will be an invaluable asset to Thirteen as we continue to grow in the digital era and embrace new opportunities to broaden our educational mission,” Thirteen prexy Bill Baker said.
