Author and ASPEN INSTITUTE Pres./CEO WALTER ISAACSON has resigned as Chairman of the BROADCASTING BOARD OF GOVERNORS. The WASHINGTON POST reports that ISAACSON, whose authorized biography of STEVE JOBS was a bestseller last year, said in his resignation letter that he is "taking on another big writing project, so I won't be able to give the BBG the time it needs and deserves."
The BBG oversees the VOICE OF AMERICA, RADIO FREE EUROPE/RADIO LIBERTY, RADIO SAWA, RADIO and TV MARTI, and other U.S. international broadcasting efforts.
