Stand Up for Public Television

Posted by RMPBS on

Ending funding for public broadcasting  would endanger PBS stations like Rocky Mountain PBS, which provide the programs and community outreach that educate, engage, inform and inspire.

Rocky Mountain PBS is an educational, informational and cultural lifeline for the nearly two million people throughout Colorado who turn to

Rocky Mountain PBS each month for exceptional commercial-free programming, news, community events, performances and public forums.
And those most impacted by the loss of funding would be citizens in rural communities. Rocky Mountain PBS reaches 98 percent of all Coloradans (including those who can't afford cable) and provides seven hours of non-commercial educational programming every day.

25 cents.

That’s how much of your federal tax dollars go towards supporting Rocky Mountain PBS.

It doesn’t sound like much. In fact, maybe you wonder what’s the big deal if it was cut. But this cut would add up to over a million dollar loss for Rocky Mountain PBS.

Make your voice heard.

Contact Your Representatives and Senators.

The vitality of Rocky Mountain PBS could be threatened. While some believe that there is no longer a need for federal support of public broadcasting, we believe Rocky Mountain PBS is a small investment with an enormous return.
