Conservatives Support the Nomination of Michael Pack to the Broadcasting Board of Governors

November 19, 2019
Washington, DC
Signatures updated: 11/20/19

Conservatives support the swift confirmation of Michael Pack to lead the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), the U.S. agency for global media.

Pack’s long experience and credentials make him more than qualified to lead the BBG. He has extensive experience in the film, television, and production aspects of media, and his credits include the two-hour documentary biography, RICKOVER: The Birth of Nuclear Power, broadcast nationally on PBS, and over ten major television shows.

From 2015 to 2017, Pack served as the President and CEO of the Claremont Institute, where he extended the national reach of the organization through the creation of a new communications department, and offices in Washington, D.C.

Pack also has extensive experience in public broadcasting, having served as the Senior Vice President for Television Programming at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting from 2003 to 2006. While there, he oversaw two new initiatives featuring a series of 20 documentary films addressing issues facing America in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and a series designed to engage middle and high school students with American history.

He also served with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as Co-Chair of the International TV Council, where he oversaw implementation of the cooperative programming between America’s public television stations, and their counterparts in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

Pack was nominated and confirmed by the Senate in 2002 to serve on the National Council on the Humanities, which he did until 2005.

Pack is more than qualified to fulfill the mission of the BBG and to lead it with the experience and commitment he has demonstrated for decades.

His nomination has languished in the Senate for close to a year without explanation. We urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Michael Pack.
