Wed. 04/08 11a: Public television and radio receives funds from a variety of sources, including the federal government through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For the past few years, Congress has voted to de-fund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Last week the House of Representatives voted again to de-fund the CPB, but the Senate passed a blueprint budget that would include funds for CPB. A joint budget resolution between the two houses is due April 15th. What does all of this mean for public media like NPR, PBS and tribal radio? What does public radio and television mean to you?
