David Piccerelli_pictureDavid Piccerelli, President, RIPBS
David W. Piccerelli is president of WSBE Rhode Island PBS, the only public television station in the state. A leader at WSBE since 1998, Mr. Piccerelli shepherded the station’s complex, multi-million dollar conversion from analog to digital broadcasting in 2009. Late in 2012, Mr. Piccerelli applied for and was granted authorization by the Federal Communications Commission to transfer the station’s license and operation from state ownership to the independent non-profit Rhode Island PBS Foundation. This bold move to become a community licensee effectively ended state funding and, under Mr. Piccerelli’s leadership and vision, opens new opportunities for growth and expansion of local public television as a valuable asset for learning and teaching in the community.

A Barrington resident and Rhode Island native, Mr. Piccerelli holds a BS in Accounting from Bryant University. Mr. Piccerelli serves on a number of professional public broadcasting committees and associations.

Mr. Piccerelli is also an avid golfer, and serves as treasurer on the board of the Brad Faxon Junior Golf Foundation, and is a past president of the Rhode Island Country Club.
