Overview
This grant would provide support for the PBS NewsHour, which continues to be a vital source of objective television covering a range of issues relevant to all the Foundation’s grantmaking programs. The NewsHour consistently ranks among the most trusted broadcast news organizations in the country, and it is our belief that institutions like it are essential, especially as the business model for journalism continues to change. The NewsHour’s corporate funders have significantly reduced their underwriting of the program. Thus, the Foundation’s funding—which has been regular since 2001—has proved particularly important in recent years.

for support of the PBS NewsHour  
PBS NewsHour continues to cover a range of issues relevant to the foundation’s grantmaking programs and remains "the only national TV news program trusted by a majority of Americans." Such institutions are increasingly rare, particularly as the business model for journalism continues to change. This grant will help NewsHour continue to deepen its domestic and international news coverage as well as increase its web presence and its ability to partner with online media and social platforms.
