Founded: 1956
Industry: Media

Kyra G. McGrath serves as COO and EVP at WHYY, Inc., a public media organization offering TV, radio and online news services. More than 50 percent of the organization’s budget comes from members and donors, so McGrath remains focused on connecting with the public wherever she can. As trust in public media has grown, so has WHYY, which has had tremendous success in its recent fundraising efforts, raising nearly double its goal earlier this year. “It not only benefits us financially, it tells us that people find this an important service and they want to support it,” says McGrath. McGrath works to make an impact in other ways too, serving as chair on the advisory council for the Kroc Community Center, which provides services to 7500 members.
