I'm pitching a story to a public broadcaster and the layout asks that I put my name on the top of the form. Am I the "Pitcher" or the "Pitchee", or should I just go with "Name"? "Name" seems too vague IMHO.

The suffix "-ee" comes from the French "é" which is used for the past participle of verbs in that language. For example, données the French word for data simply means "givens".
Since you are not pitched, pitchee would make no sense. If you pitch you are the agent i.e. the pitcher.
You are the pitcher, if you want to go with that terminology. The -er suffix denotes the agent of the root verb, in this case "pitch." However, you could also call yourself the pitchman if you want to give the impression that you're a high-energy seller of ideas.
