What does PBS mean to you? Let your voice be heard on federal funding for public broadcasting.
The President’s budget proposes eliminating public media funding.
Without this critical seed funding, local stations like WTVP may be forced to go off-air or cut the programs you love and the public services Central Illinois relies on. Central Illinois could lose access to educational content for children, emergency communication services, local programming, trusted news and more.
