Grants to this Grantee
for support of the PBS NewsHour  
PBS NewsHour continues to cover a range of issues relevant to the foundation’s grantmaking programs, which includes coverage in areas such as climate change, the environment, education, immigration, criminal justice, and access to healthcare. It is a credible media source that provides viewers with in-depth, responsible, and unbiased news coverage on timely issues. Such institutions are increasingly rare, particularly as the business model for journalism continues to change. During the term of this grant, "PBS NewsHour" will continue to deepen its domestic and international news coverage, prepare for the U.S. 2020 presidential elections, as well as increase its web presence and ability to partner with online media and social platforms.
