The proposed Federal budget was released March 16, and as we feared, funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has been eliminated. CPB funds all public broadcasting, including NJTV, so this proposed cut is terrible news for us, and for our members and viewers. Stand with NJTV by letting legislators know the importance of public television.
NJTV serves the Garden State with programming that educates, enlightens and inspires. We have provided children a safe harbor in a television environment that often contains content unfit for growing minds. And we provide materials that teachers use in the classroom each and every day. All for $1.35 per taxpayer, funding that comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
