Part of a series of statistical reports on public broadcasting, this publication is based on data supplied by public television and CPB-qualified public radio stations in a survey of CPB-qualified public radio programming by category. This report is the first study of its kind on public radio content, and the data represent a sample of an entire year (FY 1978) of public radio programming. Details of the research methodology are presented in the first chapter and in the appendices of the report. Numerous tables and figures display data on public radio in 1978; public radio by part of the day; music and news/public affairs programming; cultural, instructional and special interest programs; and NPR (National Public Radio) and locally distributed programming. Appendices include information on the survey method and operations, computation of standard error, survey instruments and cover letters, Subsidiary Communications Authority broadcasting, and a list of stations and categories.
