The Television Academy today announced its newly elected board of directors, who will serve a two-year term.
The new members will begin January 1, 2023 and run through December 31, 2024. According to the Academy, more than half of the elected members are new to the boardroom and represent diverse talents and professions across the industry.
The 16 newly elected governors who will serve their first-ever term are: Bobbi Banks (sound editors), Eric Becker (Lighting, Camera & Technical Arts); Mary Lou Belli (directors); Hillary Bibicoff (Professional Representatives); Patrick Cady, ASC (Cinematographers); Lamb Chamberlin (Animation); Megan Chao (documentary programming); Tessandra Chavez (choreography); Yvette Cobarrubias (commercials); David Hartle (Production Directors); Christina Lee (Public Relations); Robert M. Malachowski Jr., ACE (photo editors); Lynn Renee Maxcy (writers); Eddie Perez (stunt); Gloria Ponce (children’s programming); and Kimberly Wannop (art directors/decorators).
Twelve governors are returning for a second term. They are: Wendy Aylsworth (Science & Technology); Nikki Carbonetta (makeup artists/hair stylists); Tony Carey (producers); Jill Dickerson (reality programming); Jo DiSante (Television Managers); Joe Earle, CAS (sound); Christie Lyn Lugo Leigh (Los Angeles area); Luke Reichle (costume design and supervision); Jeff Russo (music); Derek Spears (special visual effects); Kim Taylor-Coleman, CSA (Casting Directors); and Steve Viola (movement and title design).
Eva Basler (Daytime Programming) and Kate Linder (Performers) return for another two-year term after a multi-year hiatus from the Academy’s governing body.
Due to the renaming of the Interactive Media Peer Group, a group that has served as an important bridge between digital and traditional media, to Emerging Media Programming Peer Group, no leader has yet been elected. With membership requirements effective January 1, 2023, elections for that Peer Group will take place December 5 – 19, 2022.
