Browning to leave Ed Board, become new VP at North Idaho College in CdA

Mark Browning, the chief communications and legislative officer for the Idaho State Board of Education, has been named the new vice president for community relations and marketing at North Idaho College. He was selected after a nationwide search, to replace retiring Vice President John Martin. Browning has been with the state board since 2007; prior to that, he was news director for KBCI CBS 2 News Boise, where he supervised a staff of 40; he also worked at other news organizations in southern Idaho and is a former president of the Idaho Press Club.

NIC President Priscilla Bell said Browning will serve as a “liaison between the college and the counties we serve,” and added, “His extensive experience in government relations will no doubt reinforce NIC's legislative efforts as well.” Browning said, “This is a tremendous opportunity for me professionally and for my family. And I'm looking forward to becoming a part of the NIC family.” He'll start his new job on Jan. 2.
