Public Media Transforming Lives

Milwaukee PBS is proud to be a public servant to Milwaukee and the surrounding area. We strive to tell your stories, to bring light to important issues and to make a real difference in our communities.

On Feb. 12, the president outlined budget priorities that include eliminating all funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

Milwaukee PBS – and other public media outlets – rely in part on CPB support.

Losing this critical funding would create an uncertain future for the services we provide to our community, including early childhood outreach, life-saving emergency alerts, national programs, unbiased news from outlets such as PBS NewsHour and 10thirtysix, and the ability to tell important local stories through programs such as Around the Corner with John McGivern.

We ask that you consider writing a letter to your U.S. senators and representatives. Let them know about the important role public media plays in our community.

You can also make your voice heard by signing a petition to support the future of public television and public radio. The petition will be shared with the administration.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to continue your support for Milwaukee PBS.
