The new head of WEDU in Tampa, Fla., wants to focus on creating more local online programming, reports Tampa Bay Online. Susan Howarth, who helped launch the video-centric while president of Cincinnati’s pubTV station (Current, Feb. 19, 2008), has 35 years experience at seven public television stations. She has “lots of ideas but I didn’t come down here with any preconceived notions,” Howarth noted. Former station President Dick Lobo, who announced his retirement in late 2009, has agreed to stay on during the transition.
