Tomlinson Resigns From CPB Board, Disputes Auditor’s Report

Former Corporation for Public Broadcasting board chairman Ken Tomlinson has resigned from the board. “The board has been reviewing a CPB Inspector General’s report–called for by a pair of congressmen–on Tomlinson’s relationship with the board stemming from Tomlinson’s attempts to add more conservative programming. The board said in a statement: “[F]ormer chairman Kenneth Y. Tomlinson has resigned from the CPB board. The board does not believe that Mr. Tomlinson acted maliciously or with any intent to harm CPB or public broadcasting, and the board recognizes that Mr. Tomlinson strongly disputes the findings in the soon-to-be-released Inspector General’s report.”
