WQED’s cutbacks are affecting not only station personnel, but also donor foundations’ confidence in the station, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are concerned about WQED’s future and we care about its mission,” said John Ellis, spokesman for the Pittsburgh Foundation, which has donated more than $600,000 over the past five years. “Like most public service TV stations across the country, WQED needs to develop a sustainable model for public service television in this region and we hope they’re successful in that endeavor.” WQED Multimedia President George Miles promised to present foundations with a new strategic plan
by July.
