The first San Diego Kiwanis club meeting of February was called to order at 12:04 on Tuesday the 2nd by President Mike Boland. Once the Invocation was completed he welcomed Chairperson of the day Club member Brian Krause who has a long-standing relationship with KPBS. But first, David Jay introduced Darian Bennett and Shelli Brown from Rady Children’s Hospital to tell us what they’ve being doing after being awarded grant funds from the San Diego Kiwanis Club & Foundation. Darian and Shelli took a few moments to talk about what they were able to accomplish with the resources given through the recent grant and thank the Club again for their generosity.
Chairman Krause introduced Nancy Worlie who is the interim general manager for KPBS. She has been with KPBS for 17 years. She served as the associate general manager for content & communications for five years prior to being named general manager. In this role she managed news, programming, public and media relations, events, government relations, human resources, and strategic planning.
As Nancy is a SDSU alumni like many Club members she was welcomed with open arms and thanked for the service KPBS provides to the region. Ms. Worlie thanked the Club for its interest and support and reminded everyone that KPBS news serves the people of the San Diego region with trustworthy, in-depth information that allows the community to hold its leaders accountable. They show how global and local current affairs change lives, and how San Diego changes the world. She reiterated that KPBS tells its stakeholders more than just what is happening – they tell you why its happening.
