Commissioner Christine Merritt Completes Second Term

As was announced at the November 10 Commission meeting, Commissioner Christine Merritt's second term concludes on Saturday, November 26, 2022. The Ohio House of Representatives appointed Commissioner Merritt to the BEMC Commission in July 2014, replacing Dr. Gordon Gee's one-year term. She was reappointed in November 2014 for a full four-year term. BEMC Commissioners may serve up to two four-year terms.

As President of the Ohio Association of Broadcasters, Ms. Merritt's service to the BEMC Commission was invaluable as the agency modernized its master control operations into a Joint Master Control for Ohio's public television stations. Most recently, she lent her expertise to the Engineering and Broadcast Operations Committee to review the Joint Master Control for future improvements.
