Operations and Costs; A Study of Educational Public Television Stations.
Anderson, James A.
Good programing in public television requires adequate funding; adequate funding requires an understanding of the total public television station picture. This study provides information concerning projected operating characteristics and the resultant costs of these operations for public broadcasting stations. After a discussion of the procedures of the study, results are presented under sections which parallel the six control variables developed in the questionnaire used to collect data from broadcasters: operational time schedules for 1971, 1972, and projected for 1976; local program needs projected for 1976; local program costs; local broadcast costs; optimal funding mix; and personnel, operational, and cpaital equipment costs. Each set of data is analyzed over variables such as respondents, ownership, market size, and total operational budget. (SH)
