Former VPR chief Vogelzang to lead Maine Public Broadcasting

first_imgVermont Public Radio,The former president of Vermont Public Radio has been hired to lead the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. The Board of Directors of the MPBN announced Tuesday that it had chosen Mark Vogelzang as its new President and CEO. Vogelzang will be in charge of both public radio and television. In Vermont, public television is a separate entity.Vogelzang, 56, is a veteran of public broadcasting, having served most recently as station manager at WBFO-FM, Buffalo’s NPR member station, where he helped facilitate a merger to be completed in 2012 between WBFO and WNED in western New York.Vogelzang was also president of Vermont Public Radio (VPR) for 16 years, from 1993 to 2009, where he helped the organization complete a $10 million endowment campaign and created two regional networks – one that carries news, information and cultural programming and another devoted to classical music and the arts. He was elected to NPR’s Board of Directors for seven years (2001-2008), and served as the Executive Director (Interim) of the NPR Foundation for most of 2009, overseeing the foundation’s entire fundraising operation.Like its Maine counterpart at MPBN, VPR is a statewide network in a largely rural state with a relatively small population, and the similarities in the challenges faced by each played a key role in his selection, according to MPBN Board Chair Henry “Hank” Schmelzer.”Mark’s long tenure as the leader of a statewide public media network in northern New England with a roughly equal number of stations, individual donors and corporate supporters,” said Schmelzer, “combined with his deep knowledge of non-profit fundraising, makes him the ideal candidate to lead MPBN into the future.”When he takes over as the head of MPBN in January, Vogelzang will replace Jim Dowe, who has been MPBN’s President and CEO since April 2006 and who last spring announced his plans to retire at the end of this year.Prior to leading VPR, Vogelzang worked as Program Director and Radio Manager at WHYY in Philadelphia, helping Terry Gross with the national launch of “Fresh Air” and assisting colleagues with national television productions, and led a major format change in Philadelphia public radio in the early 90’s.Vogelzang received his BA degree from Dordt College in Iowa, where he also began his public radio career at the campus radio station. He and his wife Rhonda have 5 adult children and 5 grandchildren.  Maine Public Broadcasting NetworkThe Maine Public Broadcasting Network was formed in 1992 through the merger of the educational radio and television stations provided by the University of Maine System and WCBB public television operated by Colby,Bates and Bowdoin Colleges. The Maine Public Broadcasting Network is an independently owned and operated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with office and studio locations in Bangor, Lewiston and Portland, Maine. MPBN operates seven radio and five TV stations. (Lewiston, Maine) MPBN 11.29.2011last_img read more

Coronavirus deaths rise to 145 in Iran, infections near 6,000: Ministry

first_imgTopics : Iran’s death toll from coronavirus reached 145 on Saturday after another 21 people were confirmed to have died during the last day, among them a conservative lawmaker from Tehran, officials and local news agencies said.Announcing the latest deaths from the virus, a health ministry official said in a televised briefing that the tally of confirmed infections had increased by more than 1,000 during the last 24 hours, totaling 5,823 by Saturday.Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called for world opposition to US sanctions which he said were draining Iran’s resources needed in the fight against COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus. Iranian Lawmaker Fatehmeh Rahbar was among those who died on Friday, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported, in another sign that the disease is spreading within state institutions.On March 2, Tasnim reported the death of Mohammad Mirmohammadi. He was a member of the Expediency Council, an entity that resolves disputes between parliament and the Guardian Council – a hardline watchdog body.Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi and another member of parliament, Mahmoud Sadeghi, have said they have also contracted the virus.As authorities work to contain the outbreak, Iran’s Mosque Authority postponed all gatherings and celebrations until further notice, the Mehr news agency said.Iran is the epicenter of the outbreak in the Middle East as most of the cases reported in the region are either people who were in Iran or who caught the virus from people who had visited the country. center_img “[President Donald Trump] @realDonaldTrump is maliciously tightening US’ illegal sanctions with aim of draining Iran’s resources needed in the fight against #COVID19 – while our citizens are dying from it,” Zarif said in a tweet.”The world can no longer be silent as US #EconomicTerrorism is supplanted by its #MedicalTerrorism,” Zarif said, without referring to any new sanctions.Trump has said he hopes the sanctions will limit Tehran’s ballistic missile program and influence across the Middle East. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and its missiles are for deterrence and defensive purposes.In Zurich, a senior Swiss government official said on Saturday that a Swiss channel to export food and medicine to Iran’s struggling population without running afoul of US sanctions is off to a good start, with dozens of companies keen to take part.last_img read more

Spanish football federation allowing La Liga to play every day, for now

first_imgTopics : La Liga accused the federation of wanting a bigger cut of the increased television revenues and went to court.The two played to a draw in August, when a court allowed the league Fridays but not Mondays.The legal replay ended on Wednesday in complete victory for the RFEF as Madrid judge Andres Sanchez handed down a ruling which potentially gives the federation the power to stop the league playing any day except Saturday and Sunday.The RFEF said in a statement that it took “maximum satisfaction” from the decision but added that it would permit games on every day for the remainder of coronavirus-interrupted championship as a gesture of “goodwill”. The RFEF said it “wants to help allow the current season to finish without any problems.””Nothing is being asked in return for this over this period of a month and a half.”It also said that it might continue to allow games on those nights if next season starts behind closed doors. But it now has the power to prevent league games on those Mondays and Fridays.The league responded to the judgment with a brief statement that expressed “its respect but absolute disagreement with the ruling.” It indicated it would appeal.The league argues that has the authority to set the dates and times of its games. The RFEF says the league can pick times but not days. On Wednesday, Judge Sanchez said the league had some autonomy to organize its competition, but with a “necessary and mandatory coordination with the RFEF.” He said that the only official league days were Saturday and Sunday. The footballing bodies already have a deal in place covering midweek evenings.  He said the “RFEF and the League must negotiate in good faith” over Fridays and Mondays. The league’s television contracts are worth more than 2 billion euros ($2.2bn) over three years. It said the RFEF would be willing to accept the extra game days in exchange for “payment of 30 million euros”, which it said was too much.center_img The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) won a legal judgment on Wednesday handing it control over league scheduling and then said it would allow La Liga to play every day when this season resumes.The two Spanish football bodies have been battling since last summer after the league decided to add games on Mondays and Fridays for this season.The RFEF objected, saying it was standing up for fans who would have trouble going to games on those nights. last_img read more
