PBS CEO Paula Kerger to keynote Mackinac Policy Conference

Public Broadcasting Service President and CEO Paula Kerger will deliver a keynote address at the 2018 Mackinac Policy Conference, the Detroit Regional Chamber announced Thursday.

Kerger’s speech will focus on how media can foster trust and the need to restore confidence in government, media and business, the announcement said. Her speech will be streamed online from the conference, which is set for May 29-June 1 on Mackinac Island.

Detroit Public Television President and CEO Rich Homberg praised Kerger as one of the best people to discuss the topic, which is one of the pillars of this year’s conference.

“For 14 consecutive years, PBS and its member stations — including Detroit — have been ranked as the most trusted national institution by independent research,” he said in an email. “Most of those years have been under the wise and progressive leadership of Paula Kerger.”

Other speakers scheduled so far include Sandy Baruah, Detroit Regional Chamber president and CEO; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal columnist and author; and Ray Telang, PricewaterhouseCoopers market managing partner, according to the conference website.
