Glendale City Councilman Vrej Agajanian was sworn in Wednesday to serve on the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which owns and operates the Hollywood Burbank Airport through a joint-use agreement among the three cities.

The authority has three representatives from each city. Agajanian is joining fellow council members Paula Devine and Vartan Gharpetian on the board, filling a position previously held by Zareh Sinanyan, who left the council to take a job with the Armenian government earlier this year.

Agajanian was elected to the Glendale City Council in April 2017.

He holds a California Certified Professional Engineer degree. As a state certified engineer for the past 38 years, he is also a member and past president of the Armenian Engineers and Scientists of America.


Agajanian is a Glendale businessman, owning two television stations, which broadcast international news and arts programming. As the commentator of a nightly program for the past 20 years, he has concentrated on U.S. social and political issues.

“It is an honor to represent the city of Glendale and to serve as a commissioner on the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority,” Agajanian said.

“The Hollywood Burbank Airport is a vital part of our community, and I am grateful for the opportunity to use my experiences to add to the safe, friendly and convenient environment at this facility.

Agajanian has lived in Glendale for 40 years.
