Celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act

LBJ and writing
Fritz Miller, SDPB

November 7, 1967 -- A date for public radio and television stations everywhere to celebrate! It was on this date that Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Public Broadcasting Act into law, allowing for broadcast excellence, education for viewers and listeners via content and independence and freedom of spirit for producers.

These are words worth reading and remembering! Thanks, LBJ!
