Revised Charter for the CPB Office of the Ombudsman
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting established the Office of the Ombudsmen by resolution of the Board of Directors in April 2005 to protect public broadcasting from undue interference, and to ensure that it represents high standards in accuracy, balance and objectivity; and
Since 2006 the Office of the Ombudsmen has consisted of one Ombudsman, and the need for its services has evolved to reflect changes in today’s public service media, and
The Board of Directors wishes to re-affirm its commitment to objectivity, balance, fairness, accuracy and transparency in public service media through a new Office of the Ombudsman.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED,
That the Board of Directors hereby adopts the attached revised Charter for the CPB Office of the Ombudsman.
