KLRU-TV, Austin PBS staff recently returned from the 2011 PBS Annual Meeting and reported that the PBS programming lineup for this Fall is outstanding. Right now, we’re in the process of budgeting and securing resources for the new broadcast year, and we need your support. Many PBS stations are running full pledge drives this month, some as long as three weeks.
KLRU is doing something different. We’re trying to raise $40,000 in the next three days.
In the coming year, KLRU will bring you new Masterpiece episodes of Downton Abbey and Sherlock, a multi-part Nova special featuring physicist Brian Greene, a Fall Arts Festival from Great Performances, and new seasons of Nature, Frontline, Austin City Limits, and our award-winning PBS Kids lineup. We also have two new exciting programs, America Revealed and Ken Burns’ Prohibition.
This fundraising weekend schedule is full of timeless music programs and moving documentaries – and as always, we’ve left your Friday night public affairs line-up in tact. and kept many of your favorite weekend programs, like Central Texas Gardener, in their regular time slots.
By giving a gift now, you help bring the World to Central Texas, and ignite the explorer in all of us. Help us reach our goal of $40,000 this weekend, and we’ll turn your support into education, information, and entertainment for all.
