Lynton to head Broadcasting Board

Agency oversees Voice of America, Radio Free Europe

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton will lead the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the agency that oversees all U.S. government international broadcasting like the Voice of America and Radio Free Europe.

Lynton was named interim presiding governor of the board after the departure of Walter Isaacson, its chairman since July, 2010. President Obama has yet to appoint a new chairman.

“It is a pleasure to work with this multitalented, bipartisan board, and an honor to be elected to help lead the organization,” Lynton said in a statement. “We are each committed to the cause of making this agency the best it can be. And with our various strengths and diverse backgrounds, we all bring something to the table.”

Lynton has been a member of the board’s governance committee, and his appointment to the board was confirmed by the Senate in summer, 2010.
