MTR Announces Name Change

Jun 5, 2007  •  Post A Comment

The Museum of Television & Radio has changed its name to the Paley Center for Media.
The 31-year-old institution switched its moniker, effective immediately, to reflect its founder, William S. Paley, and broaden its scope to embrace newer forms of media.
The center will continue to collect, preserve and make available to the public a collection of radio and television programs. The center also will continue to hold industry events and panel discussions in New York and Los Angeles.
Moving forward, an increasing number of such events will be available through the Paley Center’s Web site and online portals such as Yahoo! and Comcast.
“The media world has changed dramatically since our founder, William Paley, created the museum as a way to preserve our cultural heritage as expressed through television and radio,” said Frank A. Bennack Jr., the center’s chairman. “Today, while these media remain hugely important, media as a whole, across all platforms and national boundaries, has changed how we receive news and entertainment and, in the process, how we think about ourselves, our culture and other societies. The new name reflects the reality of a more fully converged world.”
