Kevin Beggs, Nina Tassler Among Paley Center’s L.A. Board of Governors

A bevy of Hollywood A-listers have been named to Paley Center for Media’s Los Angeles board of governors, the nonprofit announced Wednesday.

Among them are Lionsgate TV chairman Kevin Beggs, NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt and United Talent Agency founding partner Peter Benedek. CBS Entertainment chair Nina Tassler is the sole woman on the list.

The board’s goal is to offer the Paley Center advice and counsel in support of a mission to lead the conversation about the cultural, creative and social significance of media and its impact on our society. Also, said Maureen J. Reidy, president and CEO of the Paley Center for Media, “The board will serve an important role in helping to ensure the Paley Center will continue to be a thriving cultural institution, must-visit tourist destination and the go-to place for television fans and the media-interested public.”

The full list of board of governors is below. The center will soon begin its annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews event, which includes panels to promote new shows like ABC’s “Dr. Ken” and Fox’s “Grandfathered” as well as a “CSI: Farewell Salute” panel featuring stars William Petersen, Marg Helgenberger, Ted Danson and Jorja Fox.
