Vice President and General Manager of WFSB and WSHM has been named to a statewide task force on public information and privacy.
Klarn DePalma is one of two leaders of the Connecticut Broadcasters Association that were named to the 17-member task force on public information and privacy.
Don DeCesare, president and general manager of WLIS-AM in Old Saybrook and WMRD-AM in Middletown, was also named.
DePalma and DeCesare are both joined on the task force by journalists Brian Koonz, Metro Editor for the Connecticut Post and Jodie Mozdzer Gil, President of the Connecticut SPJ Board and assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven.
The task force includes 13 other members, including a state representative from the Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information and the Executive Director for the FOI Commission.
Connecticut Speaker of the House Brendan Sharkey and Senate President Pro Tempore Donald Williams Jr. will select two chairpersons for the committee.
The task force will meet between July 1 and Jan. 1, at which point they will point a report with recommendations that will then be sent to the Connecticut General Assembly.
