Bruce Ramer re-elected CPB chair

Showbiz attorney has served on org's board since 2008

Bruce Ramer, one of showbiz’s most prominent attorneys, has been re-elected chairman of the board of the Corp. for Public Broadcasting, the nonprofit that allocates government funds to public media.

In a tough budget climate, the CPB has so far fended off congressional calls to eliminate or severely scale back funding for public broadcasting, including an effort by House Republicans to zero out funding for NPR.

Ramer, a partner in Gang, Tyer, Ramer & Brown, is a Republican appointed to the board of the CPB by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the Senate in 2008. He was first elected chairman of CPB in November. Terms run for one year.

Elected vice chair was Patricia Cahill, general manager if KCUR-FM at the U. of Missouri-Kansas City. Cahill has worked as a producer, program director, news director and general manager at KMUW-FM at Wichita State University. She was appointed to the CPB board by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate in August, 2009.

Ramer has been active in public media for more than 20 years and served on the board of KCET in Los Angeles, serving as its chairman from 2001 to 2003.
