Show your support for Big Bird!

After the first presidential debate, millions of Big Bird and Sesame Street fans took to social media and spoke out on behalf of saving our fine feathered friend.

Here at CPT12 we applaud the enthusiasm for the wonderful programming we’re able to bring you every day. From Sesame Street to Independent Lens to Masterpiece, we are big fans ourselves.

It’s not hard to make the case for the value that CPT12 brings to our community:

Over the course of a year, 91 percent of all U.S. television households tune in to their local PBS station. In fact, our service is watched by 81 percent of all children between the ages of 2-8. Each day, the American public receives an enduring and daily return on investment that is heard, seen, read and experienced in public media broadcasts, apps, podcasts and online – all for the cost of about $1.35 per person per year.”

~Paula Kerger, President and CEO, PBS

And while the latest Washington Times/Zogby Poll found that most voters say spending taxpayer money on public broadcasting is a good use of government funding, that funding accounts for only 15 percent of our operating budget here at CPT12.

The rest comes from people like you, who value the programming and impact we do every day.

Additional Thoughts

“Big Bird is no ruthless campaign advisor or pundit. Instead, he knows something about people, how we learn, what we value, who we are, and who we can become.”

~ Rich Harwood

“PBS is a national treasure, and Big Bird is our golden — um, whatever kind of bird he is.  Hands off!”

~ Charles M. Blow, NY Times Editorial
