Terri’s responsibilities include managing WFIT’s $600,000+ annual budget raised through Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s grant, Florida Public Broadcasting/DOE’s grant and other corporate and foundation grants, as well as underwriting, membership donations, special events, and planned giving donations.

She’s an authorized agent for National Public Radio and station representative for the Federal Communications Commission, ensuring compliance with rules and regulations. She’s also a member and representative of Florida Public Broadcasting.
