Amanda McMullen – New Bedford Whaling Museum [Townsquare Sunday]
Amanda McMullen arrived in New Bedford this spring, after being hired as the new President and CEO of the New Bedford Whaling Museum. As the new President, she has overseen two major events. One was the public display of the restored "Panorama," the longest painting in North America depicting a whaling voyage that begins in New Bedford and visits to ports of call throughout the world. McMullen was also present for the Re-Dedication of Paul Cuffee Park, honoring Cuffee's contributions as an abolitionist and businessman in Greater New Bedford during the late 1700's and early 1800's. Amanda McMullen visits Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss her first few months on the job, and what lies ahead for New Bedford's most popular attraction.
Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
