Bill Overall is Director of Education and New Media for Georgia Public Broadcasting. On the education side, his team focuses on creating educational materials that directly serve Georgia's children as well as provide professional development services for Georgia's educators, child care providers, and parents. On the new media side, his team focuses on projects and activities to move GPB forward into non-linear and interactive platforms such as the web and mobile phones. As a Georgia native, he is first-generation product of the GPB's children's television programs. He graduated from the Grady School of Journalism in 1991 with a speciality in newspapers. During his post-graduation unemployment he discovered that programming for the internet was the best chance for being able to eat. He's been working in the industry now for nearly 20 years, and feels like GPB is a natural way to reconnect his nerdiness to his original passion for media.
