Public Television Station Employment Practices and the Composition of Boards of Directors: The Status of Minorities and Women.
Jennings, Ralph M.; And Others
The Office of Communication of the United Church of Christ has conducted two studies on the racial and sexual composition of public television employees: first, an analysis of the 1971 and 1972 Annual Employment Reports filed by most of the public broadcasting licensees, and second, an analysis of the racial and sexual composition of the boards of directors of 31 public television stations. The report describes the results of these analyses and concludes that public television station licensees appear to have made only minimal progress in improving the employment opportunities for minority group members, that in most cases the proportion of minority employees found in public television is below that found among commercial stations, that the employment opportunities afforded women appear to be only slightly better in public television than in commercial television, and that both minority groups and women are underrepresented among directors of stations.
