Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re so proud that our lineup reflects the diversity of the television viewing experience—from history-making programs highlighting the LGBTQ+ community, to Emmy Award-winning comedies and dramas with strong female characters, action-packed adventure series, and a conversation with one of the sharpest voices on late-night TV.
