As a kid, I watched Sesame Street EVERYDAY on PBS – I was also a fan of 3-2-1 Contact, Reading Rainbow, and many of the educational shows produced for PBS by Children’s Television Workshop. I grew up watching (and still watch) NOVA, Masterpiece Theater, and so many other shows – I feel these had a major impact on my education and culture – which wouldn’t have been possible without PBS.
It is more than television. More than media. It’s a cornerstone of learning in America.
Please don’t let PBS die.
