Tim Fallon, CEO of Lehigh Valley Public Media in Bethlehem, Pa., will transition to the role of CEO emeritus April 1, the station announced Tuesday. 


Fallon has led the organization for 12 years. He told the station’s board in January that he wanted to “step away from the day-to-day operations of the organization, while continuing to contribute in this new capacity,” according to a press release.

“I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to serve the community and want to thank our dedicated staff, donors, and partners for their continued strong support,” Fallon said in the release. “As I prepare to step aside as CEO, I look forward to continuing to advance our organization’s mission as we bring in new leadership.”

Fallon “has achieved what he set out to accomplish and is ready to take on new challenges with his entrepreneurial energy,” Tracey Werner, LVPM’s director of marketing and communications, said in an email. He will be “involved with many of our external partners,” provide counsel to leadership and the board, and serve as “an ambassador for the organization,” Werner said.

Under Fallon’s leadership, the organization secured $82 million in the FCC spectrum auction and launched LehighValleyNews.com.

He started with the organization in 2009 as project director to develop a new $23 million headquarters for the organization.

“Tim has led Lehigh Valley Public Media through an era of tremendous growth and his impact has been felt across the region,” said Mike Keim, chair of LVPM’s board of directors. “We are grateful for his years of service and community leadership and look forward to his valuable contributions in this new role while continuing as a member of our board.”

Fallon’s term on the organization’s board runs until January 2027. The board will lead a national search for his successor.
