Join the Leadership Circle

"The landscape of television and radio and the values of our society have changed significantly since WETA's founding in 1961. What keeps me so passionate about public broadcasting is the integrity it has shown in light of all that change.

Our commitment to quality, excellence, lifelong learning and families is as strong — if not stronger — as the day we were founded."— Sharon Percy Rockefeller, President & CEO
