A YEAR OF DECISION.
MILLER, PAUL A.
WE MUST LOOK AT THE NEEDS OF OUR SOCIETY AND ITS CITIZENS AND ASK TO WHAT EXTENT THE CAPACITY OF NON-COMMERCIAL BROADCASTING HAS BEEN USED TO IMPROVE THE CONDITION OF MAN. COMMERCIAL TELEVISION HAS COMMUNICATED KNOWLEDGE OF OUR SOCIAL PROBLEMS BUT THE ROLE OF NON-COMMERCIAL MEDIA IS TO HELP TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS. EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING IS NOT WIDELY USED BY COMMUNITY SERVICE AGENCIES BECAUSE COUNTRYWIDE COVERAGE IS NOT PROVIDED AND THERE ARE MANY BARRIERS TO ITS USE CREATED BY THE WAY IT IS ORGANIZED, REGULATED, AND OPERATED. IF THE EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING SYSTEM COULD PROVIDE VALUABLE SERVICE TOWARD IMPROVEMENT OF SOCIETY, SUBSTANTIAL FUNDING COULD BE CHANNELED INTO IT. AT PRESENT, THERE IS SPOTTY COVERAGE AND A MIXED SET OF PURPOSES--WE HAVE ONLY ONE STATE WITH A STATEWIDE RADIO NETWORK, YET THIS COULD BE OF INVALUABLE ASSISTANCE TO COMMUNITY SERVICES, ESPECIALLY THROUGH SUB-CHANNELS TO SPECIAL RECEIVERS. A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS IS ESSENTIAL FOR STATE AND LOCAL ADMINISTRATORS OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND COMMUNITY PROGRAMS. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE NAEB JOURNAL, PUBLISHED BI-MONTHLY BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS, URBANA, ILLINOIS 61803. (EB)
