As PBS Reno community partnership coordinator, Goodnight will secure trades and additional funding from corporations that support PBS Reno. The funding will allow PBS Reno to provide educational outreach in local classrooms through its Curiosity Classroom workshops, along with producing award-earning local productions including Wild Nevada and ARTEFFECTS.

Simpson has a strong background in digital art, lighting design and operation, along with a deep appreciation for computers and robotics – plus a love for outdoor adventure.

Simpson is part of the PBS Reno engineering team that includes master control operators who work closely with PBS Reno programmers and other programmers across the nation to ensure a seamless broadcast signal.
