Five weeks ago we started our month-long commemoration of the 50thanniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act, signed by President Lyndon Johnson on November 7, 1967. The goal of each challenge was to engage in community, discover histories, share those stories with the public, and start dialogues. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your participation and look forward to seeing your posts this week on Current Initiatives and Memorabilia!

Show us your posters, commercials, first logos, historic photographs, and mascots! How are you using your preserved history? What initiatives are you working on now?


We invite public broadcasting organizations, museums, archives, libraries, historians, public media fans, and other cultural organizations to personalize #PubMedia50 and share the stories in your own holdings and memories.

See you there!
