New Initiative: Recomend the Crash Course to your local PBS Station
Hello Brigade Members,
Last week Chris had a terrific local success–Springfield, MA’s PBS affiliate, WGBY, produced a presentation of the Crash Course that was broadcast live in the Western MA area. You can view a free streaming video of the event here:
The production looks great and captures much of the energy of the seminars in a TV-ready format. We see this is a tremendous opportunity to spread the word and bring in a new audience for the Crash Course, but your help and enthusiasm will be crucial in this effort! We encourage you to contact your local PBS affiliate station (you can find your station here: http://www.pbs.org/stationfinder/index.html) and request that they pick up the Crash Course. The more support we can get, the more likely the Crash Course will be picked up nationwide. Call them or email them and direct them to the first link above, expressing your enthusiasm for the message and content and how eye-opening and engaging you feel it would be for audiences in your area.
Thank you, Brigade Members, for your continued support. You are absolutely integral in spreading the word, and we could not do what we do without you!

Sorry the formatting was all messed up on that. Don’t know what happened…
We emailed the hour long clip to a friend of ours who is a Program Director at WHRO here in Virginia. He emailed back after watching and said they had ordered the full program from WGBY. Not sure at this point if they are going to present the WGBY broadcast material but they have it and are evaluating it. Our foot is in another door.
I’ll be on this as soon as I get done with finals 4/11/09 … Don
Placed a phone call to ETV, the PBS affiliate in South Carolina. Recommended the program that was shown on WGBY to Sheryl Nunnley, in the Program department. Gave her the WGBY web site reference so that she could view the PODCAST.
Placed a phone call to GPD, the PBS affiliate in Georgia. Recommended the program that was shown on WGBY to Ryan Fowler, the Program Manager. Gave him the WGBY web site reference so that he could view the PODCAST.
sent to Rocky Mountain PBS & KBDI in Denver (both local PBS stations)
The exciting news is that Chris did a fund raising video for a PBS station in MA. I think you would benefit from showing it locally during your next fund raising effort. You can find the video at this URL:
Please let me know what you think. Thanks … Don
