Description:

At the helm of the Knight Foundation, President and CEO Alberto Ibarguen sits in between those who create information and those looking for innovative ways do distribute it.
He and his staff oversee a $2 billion endowment, left behind by former Knight Ridder owners the Knight brothers, which they use to fund countless grants each year in the 26 communities where the one-time Miami Herald owner also had newspapers.
On top of looking for new business models to sustain a media industry in upheaval, the foundation also funds projects in the arts. A Gallup poll commissioned by the foundation showed culture is a major factor in determining a person’s engagement in their community and whether they stay.
“It is a way where you and I can begin to have a relationship that helps us understand each other and helps us create the new kind of relationship that we’ll have in Miami,” Mr. Ibarguen said. “You don’t know need a whole lot of explanation to be moved by a Beethoven symphony or a Gloria Estefan song or a painting by a Daniel Arsham, the local artist.”
He discussed some of the Knight Foundation’s latest programs, what digital experiments are seeing success and his work on the boards of such companies as AOL, PepsiCo and AMR, the holding company for American Airlines, with Miami Today staff writer Zachary Fagenson.
