The Museum of Television & Radio on Thursday named four members to its Los Angeles Board of Governors.

Joining the board are Bob Broder, vice chairman of International Creative Management; Marc Graboff, West Coast president of NBC Universal Television; Monica Karo, West Coast managing director of OMD; and John Kilcullen, publisher of the Hollywood Reporter and Billboard.

“We are pleased to have Monica, Bob, John and Marc join the L.A. Board of Governors,” said MTR President and CEO Pat Mitchell. “Coming from such diverse areas of the industry, these executives will bring much-needed voices to make MTR an even more well-rounded and integral part of the Los Angeles entertainment community.”

Created in October 2002, the Los Angeles Board of Governors serves as the face of the museum in the city’s entertainment community. Led by co-chairs Peter Chernin of News Corp., Leslie Moonves of CBS Corp. and Gordon Crawford of Capital Research & Management, the board oversees programming such as the MTR Industry Forum, which gives media professionals the opportunity to network and discuss developments within television, radio and new media.

The Museum of Television & Radio was founded by television pioneer William S. Paley in 1976 as a cultural institution that aims to use “its curatorial expertise, an international collection and close relationships with leaders of the media community to explore and explain the intersections between media and society.”
