Thank you for making PBS one of the top networks

Posted Monday, May 18th, 2015
Jack Gibson

I just returned from the PBS Annual Meeting in Austin where I had the pleasure of connecting with colleagues and brainstorming innovative ideas that will shape the future of public broadcasting.

There were many big announcements, too. The biggest was that, for the first time in 10 years, PBS ranks #4 in ratings among television networks. This means that PBS outperformed all the cable networks during the February 2015 sweeps period. This is a remarkable achievement thanks no doubt to the continued success of programs like Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge and Wolf Hall. It's also thanks to viewers like you who turn to PBS for exceptional programming.

Locally, PBS 6 is performing exceptionally well. It ranks #4 in primetime viewing among all PBS stations nationwide and we're seeing the PBS 6 viewing audience continue to grow.

These rankings are wonderful news that provide great momentum as we head into our fiscal year-end countdown. At the end of this month, AZPM kicks off its final television pledge campaign of the fiscal year. We've decided we want to shake things up a bit this time around, so AZPM's year-end goal is 700 — we want to reach out to at least 700 people who have never supported AZPM and convince them to take the next step of investing in their public media stations.

Of course, if you're a long-time supporter, we welcome and appreciate your continued investment in AZPM. Another way you can help is by encouraging your friends and family who listen to one of AZPM's stations to make an investment in AZPM. Public media is possible only with the active support of the public. One person alone cannot make it possible, but when we join together and pool our resources, we can accomplish great things. As you've heard me say before — when you give, we all gain.
