Lawson to step down as APTS president

Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) president and CEO John Lawson will step down March 14 to join ION Networks as executive VP of policy and strategic initiatives in Washington D.C.

Under Lawson’s seven-year leadership, the association was instrumental in securing multicast carriage of public station DTV signals on cable systems. At APTS, Lawson also helped to persuade Congress to increase federal funding for public television, including funding for the digital conversion of stations, the next-generation PBS satellite interconnection system and the production of digital education content.

APTS executive VP and COO Mark Erstling will serve as interim president during the search for Lawson’s replacement.
