Updates on Federal Funding for GLT

President Trump's budget for FY 2018 eliminates federal funding for public media, including GLT.

Ultimately, the Congress will make final decisions on continuing the annual federal investment in  the public broadcasting system.

This is why it is critical that you be ready to let your Senators and Representatives know they must sustain federal funding for public radio and television. Sign up here for updates from Protect My Public Media, the national advocacy organization for public media.

Public radio and television stations need federal funding to survive. We've been threatened in the past and public outcry saved the day every time. With your help, we can prevail. Your voice matters!

After you sign up for direct updates, encourage your friends and family to get involved and follow Protect My Public Media on Facebook and Twitter.
