Discovery Communications and Hasbro joint TV network The Hub has formed an independent advisory board comprised of child development, education and family media professionals. The initial seven members of The Hub Advisory Board will provide advice and insight regarding new research, innovations and recommendations that impact the health, education and safety of children.
Several additional appointments to the board are anticipated in 2011. The Board will be chaired by educational psychologist and television industry specialist Dr. Helen Boehm. A former director of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) and a professor at the City University of New York, she has served as SVP for Responsibility and Standards at MTV Networks/Nickelodeon and at the Fox Network.
