The woman behind NOVA: Paula Apsell

So you’re the world’s biggest NOVA fan. Or maybe you’re on the hunt for advice on how to break into public television production. You’re in luck.

MPT recently took some time out to interview Paula Apsell, senior executive producer of NOVA. Hers is the ultimate story of perseverance and success. Apsell joined WGBH Boston straight out of college, taking on the very unglamorous task of typing the station’s daily television program log. Decades later, she’s at the helm of America’s favorite science show.

The interview is the latest in MPT’s new podcast series, where we talk to big names in public television and find out how they got where they are today.
