Hey everyone! It’s Sabrina. As the Radio Doer here at Brown Paper Tickets, it’s essential that I advocate for public media. Therefore, in response to the recent threats on public media funding, I sent this letter to the editor of the Seattle Times expressing my concerns:
In my job and in my social life, I work to support public broadcasting and community media.
In our region, we’re fortunate to have several public media institutions. The House Appropriations Committee is proposing to wean NPR off federal funding by 2014. How will this impact KUOW and KPLU?
The attacks on public media funding have inspired many to get out in front of this issue and take action. I encourage you to do so as well.
