New Hampshire Public Television is separating from the The University System of New Hampshire, reports the Portsmouth Herald News. USNH will continue to hold NHPTV’s broadcasting license, but the station’s board will take over management of day-to-day operations, including employment. Steps to make NHPTV, which has been part of the university since 1960, a separate nonprofit will take place over the next year. “This change is an opportunity for NHPTV to more nimbly adapt and respond to viewer needs and interests,” said station head Peter A. Frid, “and to provide targeted educational programs, partnerships and services to the greater New Hampshire community.”
