The WBUR Executive Advisory Council (EAC) is composed of Boston-area community and business leaders dedicated to supporting and advancing the mission of WBUR and its affiliated stations.
The EAC held its first meeting on Dec. 6, 2005, under Paul La Camera, then WBUR’s newly appointed general manager. Since that date, several new members have been appointed to replace original members.
During the appointment process, EAC candidates are recommended by Charlie Kravetz, the general manager of WBUR, and Peter Fiedler, EAC chair and vice president for administrative services at Boston University. All candidates are approved by Boston University President Robert A. Brown before serving. Two EAC members, Elaine Kirshenbaum and Carla Meyer, also serve on the Boston University Board of Trustees.
The Executive Advisory Council meets three times a year.
