From Our President & CEO
Summer is very much in the air as I write in May. For PMC, CET & ThinkTV, the arrival of summer will mean the end of our Fiscal Year (June 30th). We close the year with a sincere thank you to the generous members, volunteers, foundations, businesses and partners who support us throughout the year. Your support gives us the opportunity to provide a unique array of programming, educational resources and online services that reach into every home and school throughout our region. You are the viewers and learners that we serve.
Speaking of quality programing, we hope you’ll find much to watch and enjoy this summer on your public television stations. PBS’ Summer of Adventure will take you around the world with a lineup of history, science and natural history programs that include: 10 That Changed America, No Passport Required, Kingdoms of the Sky, The Outback and Wonders of Nature. Mystery returns to Sunday night with the fifth season premiere of Endeavour as well as the return of The Tunnel. American Masters uncovers the many sides of baseball Hall-of-Famer Ted Williams who had a complex relationship with his family, press and fans.
Local programming is well represented with the premiere of the 9th season of The Art Show. And the ThinkTV/CET 15-month opioid initiative, The Opioid Epidemic – Here at Home continues with the premiere of 20 Seconds of Courage: Fighting the Opioid Addiction in Rural Ohio. This local production focuses on the efforts in one community to save lives; a story of neighbors, individuals, and those in public safety working to find solutions. A new three-part series, Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic will also premiere..
Of course there’s music this summer with Celtic Thunder X, Andrea Bocelli – Landmarks Live in Concert, Celtic Gold: An Irish Song and Dance Journey, Perry Como: Till the End of Time, My Grandpa’s Fiddle and much more.
And join us for A Capitol Fourth, commemorating the 242nd birthday of our country, live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
It’s all on ThinkTV and CET.
All the best,
David M. Fogarty
