KCETLink, the struggling parent company of former PBS outlet KCET-TV, has added two more boldface names to its board of directors.

Jeffrey Levine is the vice president and head of television for Random House Studio, a film production arm of the well-known book publisher.

Dan German is the founder and general partner of Fort Mason Asset Management, a money management firm in San Francisco.

The additions bring the total of directors at KCET to 21. That includes Al Jerome, KCET's longtime chief who recently announced his upcoming retirement.

"We welcome their exceptional leadership and business savvy as we search for a new chief executive," board chairman Dick Cook wrote in a statement announcing the moves.

KCET, now based in Burbank, left PBS in 2010 after longtime disputes over dues and other issues. The station has since struggled with fundraising and low ratings.
