Godburn will take on a more client-facing role with PMM, a WGBH partnership with Sony Electronics on a centralized media management and content distribution service designed to give public TV stations tools to engage with communities. She will continue to serve as the lead for MAG as well.

Godburn has led MAG’s Boston and Los Angeles offices for the last seven years, helping with the mission to provide accessible media services to viewers who are blind, deaf, hard of hearing or visually impaired.

I look forward to building relationships with public media stations and helping them use PMM technology to streamline and strengthen their operations.”
