Peabody Awards Sets Advisory Board with Top TV, Digital Execs

The Peabody Awards has crafted its first-ever advisory board consisting of two dozen top execs from the TV and digital realms.

Jeffrey P. Jones, director of the University of Georgia’s George Foster Peabody Awards, said the board will be separate from the panel of jurors who evaluates entries and decides on Peabody winners each year.

Instead, the advisory board will provide guidance to Jones and his staff, and support the organization’s future initiatives. The members will be dispersed among five committees: branding and mission, the Peabody archives and endowments, original content and programming, internationalization and events.

The Peabody org is in the midst of revamping its annual awards ceremony, tapping Fred Armisen to host the May 31 event that will be complete with a red carpet.

The advisory board members are:

Dick Askin (Askin & Company, Inc.)
Neal Baer (writer-producer)
Kevin Beggs (Lionsgate TV)
Emerson Coleman (Hearst Television)
Stephen Davis (Hasbro Studios and Global Entertainment)
Nancy Dubuc (A&E Networks)
Michele Ganeless (Comedy Central)
Cliff Gilbert-Lurie (Ziffren Brittenham LLP)
Bob Greenblatt (NBC Entertainment)
Paula Kerger (PBS)
Roma Khanna (MGM TV)
Isaac Lee (Univision)
Paul Lee (ABC)
Michael Lombardo (HBO)
Steve Mosko (Sony Pictures Television)
David Nevins (Showtime Networks)
Bruce M. Ramer (Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown)
Rick Rosen (WME)
Ted Sarandos (Netflix)
Bradley Siegel (TVOne)
David Stapf (CBS Television Studios)
Dana Walden (Fox Television Group)
Joe Uva (NBCUniversal)
Cyma Zarghami (Nickelodeon and MTV)
