Federal Funding Update

Brent Molnar reported APTS shared that $445 million in CPB funding, $20 million in interconnect funding and $26 million in RTL funding are all included in the Senate bill to be voted on this week. He also shared that Indiana representatives in the WTIU viewing area overwhelmingly contacted their representatives expressing support for the funding.

Weekly Special Focus Group Results

Brent Molnar reported that the group was made up of four groups: familiars, unfamiliars; 50+, 49-. The group thought the opening of the show was too long, liked the hosts, liked the field shows, were confused about the title and logo and 50+ did not like the musical segments.

Nominating Committee

The members of the Nominating Committee have received lists of multi-year WTIU members in Jackson and Morgan Counties, plus the city of Indianapolis.  At a later time, please review the lists and see if you can identify a few names of individuals who might be willing to serve on the WTIU CAB. It would be especially helpful if we could identify individuals who might help us to diversify the makeup of the WTIU CAB in terms of age and ethnic backgrounds.  Brent will follow up with members of the Nominating Committee later this month.  WTIU needs to fill four seats.
