Celebrate 50 Years of Public Media


When President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the bipartisan Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 into law, the legislation that created public media, he envisioned a system of local stations that would educate and enrich the American mind and spirit, and strengthen our democracy.

As the Public Broadcasting Act turns 50 this month, we are celebrating the public media stations that advanced the mission of the legislation.

We invite you to join the nationwide social media celebration. Use our social tools to share why you value your public media stations. If you can, please tag your local stations in your post with the hashtag #PubMedia50.

When you post, a pin will be placed on our map.
