(AP) — A broadcast industry veteran has been named to lead Mississippi Public Broadcasting. The Mississippi Authority for Educational Television’s Board of Directors said on Wednesday that it had named Royal Aills to lead the agency after a national search.

Aills will replace Ronnie Agnew, who left MPB in December 2021 to become general manager for WOSU – a public media station in Columbus, Ohio.

Prior to his appointment to MPB, Aills served as general manager of RSU Public TV at Rogers State University in Claremore, Oklahoma.

Aills officially starts his new role on September 19th.
