WNET Announces Veterans Content Sharing Initiative at 2017 APTS Public Media Summit

Building off of the success of the MMG Arts and MMG Tech initiatives, and looking ahead to Ken Burns’ highly anticipated documentary, The Vietnam War, WNET is launching a new, free, Veterans Content Sharing Initiative, enabling public media stations across the country to share local content about veterans, expand their programming, and better serve their communities.

WNET is introducing the newest content sharing initiative to the system at America’s Public Television Stations (APTS) Public Media Summit this week.

The APTS Public Media Summit is the largest annual gathering of public broadcasting general managers and community leaders who come together to explore issues that are vital to the future and mission of public service media. The 2017 Public Media Summit will be held Monday, February 27, 2017 – Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at the Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown, 24th and M Streets NW, in Washington, D.C.
