Overview
KQED is Northern California’s largest public broadcasting media outlet. Nationally, it is one of the most-watched Public Broadcasting Service television stations during primetime and the most listened to National Public Radio member station with 830,000 listeners each week. KQED plans to implement a two-year initiative to develop a new multimedia arts service and arts editorial strategy that emphasizes the centrality of arts to civic life and the cultural vitality of the San Francisco Bay Area. Support would enable KQED to establish its first Arts Desk, a three-person management team that would develop original material for television, radio, the internet, mobile applications, and educational use. It would also develop creative community-based and online audience engagement strategies and a tablet application.
