A partnership to promote the future of regional public media

At North Country Public Radio's annual meeting last night in Old Forge, the Adirondack Community Trust announced a partnership with NCPR to help create the next generation of public media professionals.

National debate over public broadcasting could impact North Country stations

Debate continued in the House of Representatives late last night on a $1.2 trillion spending bill that carries deep cuts to a number of Federal programs.

Among the $60 billion in cuts is a proposal pushed by House Republicans to eliminate all $430 million in federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

That money subsidizes public television and public radio in the North Country, including North Country Public Radio.

The idea of ending federal support of public broadcasting has some support among Republicans and conservatives here in the region, while others think it would be shortsighted.

Meanwhile, managers of the region's public radio and television stations have been mobilizing their supporters, through announcements on the air and on their websites, against what they describe as an "assault" on public broadcasting.
