The Corporation for Public Broadcasting Tuesday announced that former NBC newsman Ken Bode and former Reader’s Digest executive editor William Schulz have been appointed to newly created positions as CPB ombudsmen.

“Congress has asked the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to both protect the production of public broadcasting from undue interference,” said CPB President and CEO Kathleen Cox, “and to ensure that it represents high standards in accuracy, balance and objectivity. The ombudsman office is a tested and reliable way to support those twin objectives.”

Mr. Bode and Mr. Schulz will make all decisions about reviewing programming or responding to issues raised by programming, according to the announcement.
