Kornacki Named New House Radio-TV Gallery Director

Not exactly new news, but news nonetheless:

    The Congressional Radio-TV Correspondents’ Association’s Executive Committee is pleased to announce that Olga Ramirez Kornacki has recently been named Director of the House Radio-TV Gallery, replacing former director Tina Tate, who has retired.

    Olga was named Director after spending 22 years in the House Radio–TV Gallery, most recently as Deputy Director.

    She and her team of Gallery employees are indispensible to the huge number of radio and television correspondents, producers and technicians who rely on Olga’s advice and expert assistance in helping facilitate the electronic media’s coverage of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    The Executive Committee congratulates Olga on this well-deserved promotion and looks forward to many years of working together during this next phase of her already distinguished career.
