Wilkommen, Bienvenu, Welcome!

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth is pleased to announce that Bob Winteringham has joined us as Of Counsel. A former Deputy General Counsel at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Bob will focus on assisting clients in the public broadcasting industry. He’ll be advising stations and other CPB grant recipients with CPB grant compliance issues as well as other areas of public broadcasting decision-making.

Bob is a 15+ year veteran of CPB’s Office of General Counsel (and CPB’s Deputy GC from 2005-2013). He has also collaborated with CPB financial reporting compliance professionals through the Public Media Consulting Group. At FHH Bob will be providing, among other services: guidance with respect to CPB Community Service Grant agreements, including on-site compliance reviews and compliance-oriented strategic advice on policy formulation, policy updates, best practices, and documentation development; assistance to CPB grantees facing a CPB OIG audit; and facilitation of public broadcasting meetings or training seminars. 

Bob got his J.D. (cum laude) from Indiana University – Bloomington (Go Big Red!), where he was the Articles Editor for the Federal Communications Law Journal. Before that he received his undergraduate degree (with high honors) from Michigan (Go Blue!). During college, he worked as a riverboat captain at an amusement park (“Here at Cedar Point, we have two docks for our boats, one in front and one in back.  You could say we have an interesting … paradox!”).

On the fun side, Bob is a cinema devotee who has seen every movie nominated for a Best Picture Oscar® since 1998.
