  1. Here’s why some Pub TV broadcasters have lower revenues.

    1. Audience complains about too many infomercials at pledge times (Example KQED-TV San Francisco) as the accused PBS affiliate known to have produced these shows such as Financial, and Health Infomercials at pledge time and then say it was produced by PBS.

    2. Secondary PBS affiliates that were dependent on educational Telecourse and Instructional Programming from KOCE-TV Los Angeles, Annenberg Learner, AIT, TVO and in some cases local Universities are losing their affiliations due to Low Revenue and in some cases the core audience telecourse programming mainly watching it on youtube, DVD and Apps.

    3. KCET did not want to pay a high fee for PBS programming this is supposedly why KCET went Independent even though they were the main PBS affiliate in LA before 2011.

    4. Too many subchannels included by the PBS affiliates but not many people watch sub channels. V-ME, PBS you, Create.

  2. Well also in Some parts of the Country there are choices for better Investigative Journalism and Documentaries, For Example Link TV has KCET and they compete against KOCE the Primary PBS Station in LA for investigative stories that affect Southern California.

    But I noticed in some parts of the country there are 2 NPR News/Talk Affiliates that compete against Each other KQED-FM Vs KALW San Francisco they aim for different audiences. KALW aims for a San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley audience while KQED-FM does shows that aim for the Bay Area Suburbs.

    But in Other parts of the country that could mean that 1 NPR affiliate does all music and another NPR Affiliate does News/Talk.
