Vivian Schiller
Former President and CEO
National Public Radio

A media executive and journalist with more than twenty years experience in the industry, Vivian Schiller was president and CEO of NPR from January 2009 to March 2011. She joined NPR from The New York Times Company where she served as senior vice president and general manager of NYTimes.com. 

As president and CEO, Schiller oversaw all NPR operations and initiatives, including the organization's critical partnerships with its more than 800 member stations, and their service to the more than twenty-six million people who listen to NPR programming every week. 

During her tenure at the New York Times, she led the day-to-day operations of NYTimes.com, the largest newspaper Web site on the internet, overseeing product, technology, marketing, classifieds, strategic planning, and business development. 

Before joining NYTimes.com, Schiller spent four years as senior vice president and general manager of the Discovery Times Channel, a joint venture of the New York Times and Discovery Communications. Under her leadership, Discovery Times Channel tripled its distribution while achieving critical acclaim for its award winning journalistic programming. 

Previously, Schiller served as senior vice president of CNN Productions, where she led CNN's long-form programming efforts. Documentaries and series produced under her auspices earned multiple honors, including two Peabody Awards, two Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards, and five Emmys. Schiller began her career as a simultaneous Russian interpreter in the former Soviet Union, which led her to documentary production work for Turner Broadcasting. 

 

 
  • 60 Minutes reputation was built on "stings" that Schiller seems to be so afraid.  She and NPR were exposed for the bigots they are and represent.

    She proves once again she is a left wing ideologue with an agenda and why we should not be funding NPR/PBS/NEA.

    It is the real job of journalists to EXPOSE the TRUTH,  always a scary business.  Schiller is part of a government propaganda mouthpiece and we need to know the truth about just who is running it.
