And Now a Word from Linda Simensky

Post by PrettyCoolStairs on Wed Jun 24, 2015 10:11 pm

I found an interesting transcript of an interview with PBS Kids programming Vice President. It's probably not necessary to read the entire article, but it explains how Simensky has seen such change in children's programming during her career among other related topics.

A relevant quote:
"In about 20 years, there will be people who will quote Arthur pretty fluently. Because they watched it as kids, their kids watched it and they will have grandchildren who are watching it." --Linda Simensky

Evidently, she has a positive outlook for the future of Arthur, suggesting it will still be viewed for many years to come. Interesting statement coming from the VP at PBS Kids.

A link if you are interested.

I had no idea Linda Simensky was at PBS now -- and VP at that. She's really carved quite a path for herself, being one of the original key people at Nickelodeon in the 90s before going over to rival Cartoon Network and so on.

I first heard of Simensky from the 2013 New York Comic Con panel. She was the only speaker that we didn't already have a wiki page for.

So Arthur will be mainstream in just 20 more years? Cool! I made us a countdown timer to help remember.
