Public Broadcasting Threatened
WASHINGTON, April 29, 2017 - As you've already heard, public media funding was proposed for elimination in the President’s budget for next year.
While our lawmakers debate that budget, there is a more pressing concern.
In the next week or so, Congress will finalize federal funding levels for fiscal year (FY) 2017, the current fiscal year. Public media funding, like all federally-supported programs, is being carefully considered. If these resources are cut, both stations, like TV 8, and your favorite programs would be at risk.
At TV 8, we are determined to provide you and your family with the exceptional, award-winning, local and national programming and services you expect and deserve – no matter what challenges face us.
If you’re interested in helping our station stay on air, please visit www.protectmypublicmedia.org to learn more.
Public media funding is a small but smart investment (just $1.35 per person!) that pays huge dividends to Americans in education, civic engagement and public safety.
We know we can overcome upcoming challenges with your support.
