Sesame Street, America's Test Kitchen, NPR, Nova, Masterpiece Theatre, American Experience, Antiques Roadshow. The list of quality educational, entertaining and important television and radio on Public Broadcasting goes on and on.
Right now, there are three separate bills before Congress to severely decrease or even eliminate all federal funding for Public Broadcasting. If passed, not only could these bills prevent us and our children from watching and listening to these great shows, but local stations such as WHYY, WDIY, WLVT and others could be put in jeopardy. Shows like World Cafe out of WXPN and distributed by NPR could also be terribly affected.
Do your kids watch PBS Kids shows like Jake does? Is it part of your routine to watch cooking shows on the weekends on PBS or listen to All Things Considered each afternoon on NPR? If you love the shows on public television and radio, please sign the survey at 170MillionAmericans.org.
