Nine Reasons to Love PBS
Make Your Voice Heard on Federal Funding for PBS In its current form, the White House's proposed budget would cut all funds to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. This money represents less than one-tenth of one percent of the entire federal budget, but its elimination would be a debilitating blow to a service that almost everyone in our region uses. Here in Central and Northern California, KVIE is a convening place for ideas, a local storyteller, and a home for young minds and lifelong learners. Each year we produce more than 50 original local programs about our region, covering everything from arts and public affairs to regional adventures and health care. We recently launched a new 24/7 channel, KVIE PBS KIDS – the only non-commercial educational channel for young learners. It's time to take action to support public television. Here are four ways you can help: 1. Sign the petition from Protect My Public Media and sign up to receive email updates. 2. Get details from PBS – including a way to identify your congressional representatives and tell them PBS matters in your community. 3. Become a sustaining member of KVIE and help ensure our financial future. 4. Explore KVIE's valuable contributions to the community and spread the word over social media using the hashtag #ILovePBS.
