We have been studying public television — especially its audiences and its fund raising for more than 25 years, and we have written for many years about these topics. Since we are now officially experiencing our "happy golden years," we think it is time to review what we've learned, sum it up and offer our evaluations of where things are now.

While our articles and rants will slowly come on line, we really want to hear from you, too. We want to make the wonderful stories about public available for all to appreciate.

We are at work on a book about public television, its programming, its audiences and its viewers. We especially want to report stories from peolple who worked in public television. We want to pull together stories from those who labored on the forefront and/or those who worked anonymously in public tv.
