WHYY, Inc. Key Developments

WHYY Appoints Sandra M. Clark as Vice President for News and Civic Dialogue

Sandra M. Clark, an Inquirer managing editor overseeing features, operations, and digital, is replacing Chris Satullo as the top news executive at the public-broadcasting affiliate WHYY. Satullo, also a former top Inquirer editor, left WHYY last September after a budget dispute with his superiors, shocking staffers who work at the radio and television studios on Independence Mall. Clark will hold the title of vice president for news and civic dialogue at WHYY, the main PBS and NPR affiliate in the Philadelphia area. She begins Aug. 22. Clark joins WHYY as public-media outlets face an aging audience and threats from podcasts and internet-streaming radios in cars. Surveys show that middle-aged Americans like public-media content. But the question is how those outlets satisfy that audience while also developing and airing content for younger adults.
