Resolved,

That the Board of Directors
of the
Corporation for Public Broadcasting
Expresses its Heartfelt Condolences
to the Family, Friends and Colleagues of
Jacquie Jones
Writer, Director, Producer, and Mentor
Two-Time Peabody Award Winning Producer, WGBH, 1995-1999
Executive Director, National Black Programming Consortium, 2005-2014

We will long remember with gratitude Jacquie’s years of service in public broadcasting as a compassionate and visionary writer, director, producer, and leader.

As a producer at WGBH from 1995-1999, Jacquie produced the Peabody Award-winning “Africans in America: America’s Journey Through Slavery.”

From 2005-2014, Jacquie led the National Black Programming Consortium (now Black Public Media), expanding its focus from public television to digital media, including through the establishment of the Katrina Project, an online digital media project documenting the 2005 hurricanes; the New Media Institute, which trained more than 500 professionals in using digital and web tools; and Public Media Corps, which connected minority and low-income communities with broadband public media resources and social media tools.

As part of public media’s American Graduate initiative focusing on helping young people succeed in school and in life, Jacquie directed and produced the Peabody and Gracie Award-winning “180 Days: A Year Inside an American High School” in 2013 and “180 Days: Hartsville” in 2015.

We share the sorrow of Jacquie’s public media family at her passing and extend our deepest sympathies to her family.

Resolved,

That the Board of Directors
of the
Corporation for Public Broadcasting
Expresses its Heartfelt Condolences
to the Family, Friends and Colleagues of
Daniel K. Miller
Inaugural Daniel K. Miller PBS Station Leadership Award winner, 2016
Executive Director and General Manager of Iowa Public Television, 2002-2013
Director of Programming and Production, Iowa Public Television 1984-2002
Senior Producer for Public Affairs Programming, Iowa Public Television, 1977-1984
Producer - Reporter, Iowa Public Television, 1975-1977

We will long remember with gratitude Dan’s years of service in public broadcasting as a compassionate and visionary producer, programmer and leader.  

In his 37 years Iowa Public Television, Dan built a legacy of editorial integrity, credibility and of public trust in the nine-station statewide network. He won numerous regional and national broadcast journalism awards and served on various boards and committees for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS, WGBH-TV, the BBC, and other public television organizations.

Under his leadership from 2002-2013, IPTV tripled its broadcast offerings and secured a national reputation for excellence, despite challenging budget circumstances and a rapidly changing media landscape. Dan guided the statewide network through the digital television transition and new content delivery systems, increased viewership and established previously unmatched coverage of Iowa. He guided creation of IPTV’s Learns, a statewide service that incorporates children’s programs during the mornings and evenings and how-to shows during the day.

In 2004, Dan warmly welcomed the CPB Board of Directors to Iowa for a CPB Board meeting.

In August 2016, PBS named him the inaugural winner of the Daniel K. Miller PBS Station Leadership Award to celebrate excellence in leadership at local stations and highlight those who strengthen and ensure the future of public media.

Dan also had a deep commitment to provide families and children with high quality children’s educational content and resources through the Ready To Learn program and was a tireless advocate for its funding.

We share the sorrow of Dan’s public media family in Iowa and across the country at his passing and extend our deepest sympathies to the Miller family.
