James Davie is PBS Utah's Station Manager, a role he is thrilled to take on after over twenty-years with the station.
James has been with PBS Utah since the fall of 1998, when he began as an intern on the erstwhile public affairs program Civic Dialogue. The following summer he was hired as a traffic associate, fresh from graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Mass Communication. He then worked his way up to Program Manager, and later Director of Programming.
James most recently acted as PBS Utah’s Director of Programming and Digital Media, where he brought an audience- and content-focused approach to his role in supervising the station’s web, social media, and online video efforts, as well as broadcast programming.
James serves on the PBS Digital Media Advisory Council, is a former president of the Public Television Programmers' Association (PTPA), and recently served a second term as board member of that organization. He has also served on the PBS Programming Advisory Council, and Program Council of the National Educational Television Association.
