Independent Television Service Inc. Key Developments

AIR, Inc. and Independent Television Service Inc. Partner Up to Double Down on Public Media Innovation

AIR, Inc. and Independent Television Service Inc. have formed a partnership to fund a second phase of development for selected Localore projects. This joint initiative builds on previous collaborations between the organizations to support transformative public media work, and map the evolving independent production sector. Localore (localore.net) is a multi-million dollar initiative produced by AIR with lead funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the Wyncote Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Since Spring 2012, AIR has led a nationwide team of independent, station-based, community and technical producers, forming a network of 'skunk works' embedded inside ten public radio and television incubator stations for up to a year. What is emerging after 11 months of field work is an extensive range of new public media models - from a rich multimedia music map in Austin, to a new style of short form video documentary chronicling the oil boom of North Dakota, to a digitally reversed version of the farmer's almanac that tells the story of climate change in Paonia, Co. - designed to reach and involve citizens on the air, screen, and streets of the community. Their efforts are aimed at expanding public media stations' capacity to experiment, and plant new seeds to take public media to more Americans.
