The cochairs of the Board of Governors are Peter Chernin, president and chief operating officer of News Corporation; Gordon Crawford, senior vice president of Capital Research and Management; and Leslie Moonves, president and chief executive officer of CBS Corporation.  A complete list of Board members is attached.

"We are pleased to have Monica, Bob, John, and Marc join the LA Board of Governors. Coming from such diverse areas of the industry, these executives will bring much-needed voices to making MTR an even more well-rounded and integral part of the Los Angeles entertainment community," said Pat Mitchell, president and chief executive officer of MTR.

The Museum of Television & Radio, with locations in New York and Los Angeles, leads the discussion about the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, radio, and emerging platforms for the professional community and media-interested public. Founded by William S. Paley in 1976, MTR draws upon its curatorial expertise, an international collection, and close relationships with the leaders of the media community to explore and explain the intersections between media and society. Through the MTR Media Center and the International Council, MTR develops new initiatives and fosters partnerships around the world. The general public and industry professionals can access the collection and participate in programs at both of MTR's locations that celebrate the creativity, the innovations, the personalities, and the leaders who are shaping the media landscape.
