Public TV Concerned About Cuts

May 8, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Public broadcasters are concerned about funding they didn’t get in President Barack Obama’s budget, Broadcasting & Cable reports. Among the items was emergency funding they asked for to help stations hurt by a decline in contributions, the trade paper says. The broadcasters are “deeply concerned that the president’s budget request for FY 2012 falls well short of public broadcasting’s need,” the heads of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, NPR, PBS and the Association of Public Television Stations said in a statement, the publication says.
