Touting It Up: Public Radio’s Diversity Audit

Public radio has a problem. In 2019, NPR’s newsroom was more than 70 percent white. The same year, 83 percent of the voices heard on its national shows were white, too. According to the most recent State of the System report by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in 2018, just 23 percent of people working at member stations identified as people of color. That’s almost a full percentage point decrease from the previous year. – Columbia Journalism Review

Congress's Budget Deal Includes Increases (!) For NEA, NEH

Mind you, they're not big increases - $2 million (1.33%) each for the NEA and NEH, and flat funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. But this is a change from the Trump administration's proposal to eliminate the agencies entirely. "Like many of Trump's planned initiatives for his first 100 days in office, however, this […]

State Of Maryland Might Replace Trump Cuts To Its PBS Funding

"What that means is that if President Donald Trump’s controversial call to zero out funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting were to take effect, Maryland would be giving MPT $3 million to replace it – the sum that MPT is scheduled to receive from the federal government through the CPB. The commitment appears to […]

Kill The Corporation For Public Broadcasting? Big Stations Will Do Fine. It's The Small Rural Stations That Will Be Hit

“So for KPCC, our CPB grant comes to about 5 percent of our overall operating budget. For stations in Alaska, for stations in a number of rural states, it’s as high as 40 percent. So there’s a real disparity in the impact that would have between rural and urban stations, and I think from a public policy perspective, that’s a concern.”

Trump's budget eliminates Arts and Humanities Endowments, privatizes public broadcasting

Conservatives often threaten to cut funding for public arts, humanities, and broadcasting, but will Trump actually do it? White House staffers who have seen Trump's proposal say he doesn't like the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, or the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, so he plans to eliminate all three as federal programs.

Lines and Colors is on strike today in support of the J20 Art Strike, calling for arts organizations and institutions to not do business as usual as a symbolic act of resistance to the looming shift in government power, and the potentially disastrous effect it will have on the arts, humanities and ...
