Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Washington, DC.
The mission of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is to take the lead in helping develop a uniquely American non-commercial public radio-television system that will inform, enlighten, entertain, and enrich the lives of people. In their annual report for fiscal year 1976, CPB lists as its activities: (1) a satellite interconnection plan which would give public television stations the opportunity to receive three or more program signals simultaneously; (2) awarding grants to public broadcasting licensees, and awarding funds to develop new CPB-qualified public radio stations in unserved markets and population centers; (3) assisting in the production of public television programs; and (4) industry support services including the creation of a Department of Human Resources Development, developing equal opportunities and training programs for women and minorities, statistical data gathering, research, educational projects, and public participation. List of members of the Advisory Council of the National Organization for 1975-76 and new appointments to the Board of Directors are included. Also, a financial summary which states net assets, administrative support expenses, and lease agreements is given. An eight page list of grants and awards for 1976 is appended. (Author/AP)
