PBS Reno President and CEO Kurt Mische has joined the Nevada Broadcasters Association Board of Directors.

Mische will serve alongside broadcast professionals and leaders from across the state as they collaborate to promote and advocate for television and radio stations in Nevada, according to a March 9 press release.

‘I’m honored to have this opportunity to serve our state’s broadcasters in this capacity,” Mische said in a statement. “Our radio and TV stations provide so much important service to the urban and rural parts of Nevada; service that makes a daily difference in people’s lives.”

Overseen by a 16-member board, the Nevada Broadcasters Association (NVBA) seeks to educate Nevada’s local, state and federal officials about important broadcasting issues, concerns and challenges.

“The Nevada Broadcasters Association Board of Directors is thrilled to have Kurt Mische as its newest board member,” Mitch Fox, NVBA President and CEO, said in a statement. “Kurt brings a wealth of experience as a veteran television and radio broadcaster and will provide an important perspective to the NVBA.”

NVBA serves as the oversight agency of the Emergency Alert System. Further, as Nevada’s voice for AMBER Alert, the association works with law enforcement agencies including the Nevada Department of Public Safety, the Nevada Department of Transportation and the Nevada AMBER Alert Review Committee.

Mische is also 2021 chair of the Reno+Sparks Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
