The Association of Public Television Stations is “issuing a plea” to governors and state legislatures to “invest in local public television stations,” according to a statement it issued today. It cited Pennsylvania, Indiana, New York and Virginia as states either slashing or eliminating pubTV funding. “State governments are essential investors in local public television stations, providing vital resources to enable stations to fulfill their educational missions,” APTS President Larry Sidman said in the statement. The National Governors Association is meeting with President Barack Obama this week in Washington.
