The Corporation for Public Broadcasting(CPB)

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is a private, non-profit corporation that was created by Congress in 1967. The Corporation is not a government agency. It promotes public telecommunications services (television, radio, and online) for the American people. CPB invests in more than 1,000 local radio and television stations . . . their services, their programs, and their ideas. These CPB-funded stations reach virtually every household in the country.

CPB is the largest single source of funding for public television and radio programming. CPB funds diverse and innovative programming that's useful, educational and cultural.

Most CPB-funded television programs are distributed through the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). CPB-funded radio programs are distributed primarily through National Public Radio (NPR), American Public Media, and Public Radio International (PRI). CPB created PBS in 1969 and NPR in 1970.

CPB does more than invest in quality programming; it helps parents and teachers educate children. CPB intends to help every child learn.

CPB funding and research make public broadcasting a trailblazer for the communications media. Public broadcasting was the first to distribute television and radio programs by satellite, and the first to use closed captioning and descriptive video.
