Claudia Puig, "one of the nation's premier broadcast executives, was appointed to the CPB board in December 2003, and confirmed by the Senate in November 2004 to a term ending in 2008. Puig, a Cuban-American, brings over 20 years of experience in Latino media to the board. She is chairman of the Audit and Finance Committee of the CPB.
