Biden's USAGM transition team leader is Richard Stengel, an MSNBC political analyst and former managing editor at Time magazine. A Biden transition spokesperson did not return a request for comment. Names to replace Pack that have been floated to Biden agency review members include Grant Turner, who was once USAGM's acting CEO, this person said. The Biden team also conferred with Steve Capus, a former senior advisor at USAGM, who was ousted at the start of Pack's tenure. A spokeswoman for NPR did not deny that Lansing spoke to Biden's transition team and declined to comment further.

Judge rules against Trump global media chief after firings
  + stars: | 2020-11-21 | by ( The Associated Press | ) www.nbcnews.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
The ruling effectively bars U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack from making personnel decisions and interfering in editorial operations. Pack, a conservative filmmaker, Trump ally and onetime associate of former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon, made no secret of his intent to shake up the agency after taking over in June. In July, Pack had ordered an investigation into the posting of a video package featuring now President-elect Joe Biden on a VOA website. Fourteen senior VOA journalists sent a letter to management in August protesting Pack’s actions, including the dismissal of foreign journalists and his comments denigrating VOA staff, which they said were endangering their colleagues and the international broadcaster’s credibility. The global media agency did not immediately respond to a written request for comment on the ruling.
