The ValleyPBS Board of Directors has announced that Jenny Toste will serve as the station’s fourth CEO.
“I am honored to work with the talented team at ValleyPBS, station members and supporters, and the diverse communities in the seven counties we serve, to tell more Valley stories,” Toste said. “ValleyPBS has a great opportunity to highlight ways in which our area is leading the nation, as well as to shine a spotlight on those who are finding solutions to local issues.”
Toste previously worked as a reporter and an anchor at KSEE24 and CBS47 in Fresno. She is also a regional EMMY Award-winner, and has worked with ABC News’ “Good Morning, America.” Her most recent job was as a social media specialist for Fresno State. She has a Master of Arts in English Literature from Fresno State.
“Jenny is the right leader at the right time for ValleyPBS,” said Jose Plascenia, chairman of the station’s CEO search committee. “Jenny’s extensive media background and business development skills will strengthen ValleyPBS partnerships, develop strategic alliances and expand our regional presence.”
Toste will start as president and CEO on Dec. 3.
