“Public media has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up listening to public radio and watching public television, more specifically PBS and NPR member stations and continue to do so today. The arts and culture, news and educational programming found on public media continues to feed my mind and my soul with information, entertainment and community news. Public media makes me laugh and smile, think deeply about social and political issues, and connect with topics important to my local community and to the world at large.”
