WGBH leadership



WGBH President and CEO Jonathan C. Abbott leads a senior management team committed to keeping WGBH a vital and vibrant public media resource for the 21st century. Our Board of Trustees, led by Chair Richard M. Burnes, Jr., provides governance, fiscal oversight, and policy advice that ensure WGBH remains true to its public service mission. WGBH also benefits from the input of other community leaders through our Board of Overseers, our Corporate Executive Council, and our Community Advisory Board. WGBH always is looking for new ways to serve you, and we’re grateful for your interest and support.
