Idaho Public Television's new general manager starts his job next week. The Idaho State Board of Education last week selected Ron Pisaneschi to replace longtime general manager Peter Morrill.

Pisaneschi is no stranger to IPTV - he's worked for the station for the last 28 years. During that time, he's served in a number of different roles, most recently as director of content.

“It felt like it was the natural next step to lead an organization that I’ve been involved with for virtually most of my career,” Pisaneschi says.

Pisaneschi says fans of the station can rest easy. He has no plans to make significant changes to Idaho Public TV’s lineup.

“I come from programming,” Pisaneschi says. “I was the one who was choosing the programs and developing with our producers the content that we produce. Viewers can feel comfortable that while there may be some slight changes here and there, they can expect the same kind of high quality programming and local productions that they’ve come to expect from us [in the past].”

Pisaneschi will take over as general manager August 5.
