PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger addresses the UM school of communication in its annual "Conversation" series.

One of the most influential voices in public broadcasting has a message for University of Miami students: “Get involved!”

PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger visited the university as part of the School of Communication’s annual “Conversation” series.

During her discussion on the role of public media in the digital age, Kerger’s biggest piece of advice to students is to get involved in the community as citizens and volunteers.

Sarah Bennet, a public relations student, says she felt very inspired after Kerger’s talk.

Domenica Leone, president of the media management association, says she sees a lot of value in Kerger’s advice.
