Corporation for Public Broadcasting

In its first 2017 budget, the Trump administration proposed phasing out funding for three federal programs: the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the *Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Arts advocates nationally mobilized and, in a rare bipartisan show of support, Congress restored funding for the three agencies, and even increased it slightly.

Dear Friends of Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting,

A Message From Terry O'Reilly

Mar 20, 2017

 On Friday, March 17, 2017 the White House released details of a proposed Federal Budget for 2018 that would, among other things, eliminate all federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. I'm writing to share with you what we know, and what it potentially means for WESA and WYEP.

Five public media stations spanning Pennsylvania have joined forces to form a collaborative reporting center called Keystone Crossroads.

Keystone Crossroads will explore urban decline and solutions in Pennsylvania and examine topics such as aging infrastructure, immigration, local government, neighborhood life, poverty and tax policy. The initiative aims to offer connected, statewide reporting on urban challenges in the Keystone State.
