From Our President & CEO

Kitty LensmanOctober 2021

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the beautiful fall weather. It’s been a busy time for your public television stations. Thank you to all who participated in our CET/ThinkTV Action Auction – donors, volunteers, sponsors and bidders – all helped make this a remarkably successful fundraising event. Also thank you to all who attended CET is ME – our neighborhood block party that celebrated the unique and original aspects of CET and PBS and recognized the impact and community contributions of Dr. O’dell Owens.

ThinkTV and CET’s Education department completed work on our summer learning camps. We reached more than half a million parents and grandparents with children in kindergarten and elementary school in Southwest Ohio. And our education work continues with workshops, professional development training for educators and our new podcast, For the Love of EdTech.

Now let’s talk about programming. Both Call the Midwife: Season 10 and Grantchester: Season 6 premiere on October 3rd. American Masters showcases Rita Moreno on October 5th and Helen Keller on October 19th, respectively. Finally, on October 26th, a new multi-part series called American Veteran debuts. American Veteran  traces the veteran experience across the arc of American history and explores the present-day divide between civilian and veteran communities.

From our educational training workshops, to station events to programming, everything we do is made possible by members like you. Thank you for your support. It truly makes a difference!

All the best,

Kitty Lensman
