Corporation for Public Broadcasting

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting provides the funding to support more than 1,300 public television and radio stations across the country. It spent the early part of the year fighting off an attempt by House Republicans to cut off funding to National Public Radio as punishment for perceived bias against conservatives. The corporation this year launched “American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen,” a public media initiative that aims to help communities address the high school dropout crisis.

Trivia

According to the corporation's Web site, more than 118 million Americans tune into PBS stations on a monthly basis, and 37 million listen to public radio each week.
