PBS and NPR to Produce TV Initiative

PBS and NPR to Produce TV Initiative

The Public Broadcasting Service and National Public Radio will collaborate to develop and produce a new television initiative with a working title of “Public Square”.
The program will focus on a wide range of subjects including history, religion, science and popular culture, as well as the arts and performance.
“During the past 30 years NPR and its member stations have developed a powerful approach to creating programs, imparting information and involving listeners in a national dialogue,” said NPR President/CEO Kevin Klose. “By taking a leadership role with PBS we are able to bring this approach to a wider audience.”
An interactive Web site will accompany the television broadcast, significantly extending the impact and reach of the program. Community-based outreach initiatives will provide complementary show components that involve local radio and television member stations.
