The Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication’s Peabody group, at the University of Georgia, has added five new members to its board of directors.

The new board members are: Susanne Daniels, global head of original content at YouTube; Peter Roth, president and chief content officer for Warner Bros Television Group; Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios; Michael Schwimmer, president and CEO of Fuse Media; and Paul Telegdy, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment.

The board is a group of prominent entertainment and media industry leaders providing support for the programme’s current and future initiatives. Launched in 2015, the board of directors is separate from the traditional board of jurors that each year evaluates entries and bestows the Peabody Awards for excellence in broadcasting and digital media.

“Each of these leaders brings invaluable experience and insights to the board’s effort to bolster Peabody’s presence and programming initiatives within the Hollywood creative community,” said Jeffrey Jones, executive director. “We welcome their participation, and appreciate the board’s guidance and leadership in promoting engagement with and conversation around transformative media programming throughout the year.”
