That the Board of Directors
Corporation for Public Broadcasting Expresses its Heartfelt Condolences
to the Family, Friends and Colleagues of John (Jack) Galmiche III
President and CEO, Nine Network of Public Media (2006-2019)
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Oregon Public Broadcasting (1997-2006)
We will long remember with gratitude Jack’s commitment to public media’s mission, his pioneering work to engage communities, and his leadership of public media regional and national initiatives.
Jack was a pioneering leader whose long career in public broadcasting made a difference in so many lives in communities across Missouri and Oregon and the country.
Since November 2006, Jack served as the President and CEO of Nine Network of Public Media in St. Louis, Missouri. Under his leadership, Nine Network expanded the station’s service, produced important local content for the region, launched the Public Media Commons and became a model for community engagement initiatives across the public media system. With Jack at the helm, Nine Network was the national lead station for American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen, public media’s long-term commitment, made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, to help young people succeed in school, career and life.
Previously, Jack served as executive vice president and COO of Oregon Public Broadcasting and managed the operations of the statewide network of public television and radio stations.
Jack served on numerous advisory groups for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, held leadership positions on the boards of PBS, American Public Television, the National Education Telecommunications Association and other public media, educational and civic organizations.
Jack will be remembered for his investment in people, his pursuit of new ideas and his belief in public media to advance the public good.
We share the sorrow of Jack’s passing with his public media family across the country and extend our deepest sympathies to the Galmiche family.
