2011 Annual Report


The story in 2011 was growth and innovation We’re hard at work at Colorado Public Television on another year of serving our community, but I would like to share with you a few of our key accomp­lishments during 2011 – all of which were made possible through the generous support of CPT12 members. These accomplishments include: • Being an Emmy Award-winner – for the third year in a row – for Colorado Inside Out. • Winning two Colorado Broadcasters Association (CBA) honors for Best Mini-Documentary and Best Public Affairs program. 2

• Launching our new branding campaign, “Welcome Here” and fully harnessing the power of social media to share and interact with our viewers. • Developing “American Graduate” – a dropout awareness initiative to help kids get back on track and graduate from high school – as part of our focus on community engagement. • Celebrating another great live concert season at Red Rocks with more than 24,000 tickets sold. • Expanding carriage on cable in new regions throughout the state, including the Roaring Fork Valley, Grand County and Pueblo. During the past year we have also made important strategic changes to become more agile, collaborative and connected to our community. While we’ve stayed committed to our public affairs programming with special episodes of Studio 12 and Colorado Inside Out – including our acclaimed “Time Machine” series – we have also embraced our musical and alternative roots with the debut of a new series, Sounds on 29th, as well as continued coverage of the

local art scene in our offbeat series Out of Order and the everpopular series In Focus with Eden Lane. In 2011 we adopted new fundraising methods, including revenuesharing partnerships with Whole Foods, Buffalo Wild Wings and The Melting Pot, during which a percent of all sales came to CPT12 in exchange for valuable visibility on air, online and in email in-boxes. We also expanded our web and on-air content partnerships – including a new health initiative, offering the quality and trustworthiness that so closely align with the CPT12 brand.

“Every story you experience on Colorado Public Television begins with you...” 12 is our namesake year, and to celebrate we intend to offer Coloradans a full array of public affairs, local cultural events, child­ren’s and international programming throughout 2012. Also, because 2012 will be a pivotal political year, CPT12 will be providing even more of its celebrated election coverage through its highly-lauded series Colorado Decides – as well as other initiatives to inform and educate Colorado citizens about the major civic issues in the State. Every story you experience on Colorado Public Television begins with you – with your attention, your engagement and your support. Thank you for your generosity,

Wick Rowland President and CEO

Community Engagement Welcome Here.

Health Initiative In December 2011, CPT12 launched a multifaceted Health & Wellness initiative. With both online and on-air components, it provides CPT12 viewers with new tools for taking control of their health. Elements include: • CPT12 Health & Wellness Blog Located at cpt12.org/health, this new blog takes a fresh look at local health issues, crazes and concerns. Topics range from the debates surrounding genetically modified foods and alternative health treatments to local health events and trends like barefoot running. • CPT12 Health View Launched from cpt12.org/health, this comprehensive health portal features a huge cache of interactive health information, including sections devoted to symptoms, medications, recipes for healthy eating, and a number of “health centers” that offer topical videos and articles. This vetted content is provided by our new strategic partner, AnswersMedia, Inc. • Say Ahh! Produced by AnswersMedia, this onair series looks at topics such as heart disease, migraines, healthy skin, diabe-

tes, cancer, depression and more, while offering information, treatment options and related content such as recipes and exercise routines. • AgeGage™ & WellRight™ Also created by AnswersMedia, these powerful interactive health assessment tools provide an in-depth evaluation of an individual’s health risks. Using a combination of online games and medical science, AgeGage assesses a person’s true physiological age, then WellRight helps the individual build a custom health plan. Designed to complement each other, AgeGage and WellRight are CPT12 member-only services that can help people make sense of their individual situations, while offering goal setting, customized menus (and shopping lists), coaching and even competitions – with incentives – between users. Both are HIPAA compliant. As an added bonus, users gain access to a discount card that saves up to 55% on generic prescriptions and up to 15% on brand-name prescriptions.

Combatting Dropout

10

In 2011, CPT12 focused on stronger community engagement. The station has always focused on local issues through its public affairs programming and traditional outreach activities. 2011 also included strong, two-way community engagement as CPT12 played a key role in specific community challenges – developing partnerships, creating content to foster awareness, and driving our audience to the solutions and organizations who are working to help. Through the generous support of a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), Colorado Public Television became the hub of engagement around the high school dropout crisis for the state of Colorado. As part of the “American Graduate” coalition, CPT12 worked with public radio station KUVO and other key non-profit and for-profit organizations around the state. Together, CPT12 and its partners have worked to inform our community about the risks and costs of dropping out of high school, as well as resources available to kids – particularly for young Gay, Lesbian,

Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) people.

Reach in the Community: CPT12 fostered awareness of this issue through a series of public service announcements, community meetings, and interactive social media. Additionally, an hour-long special, American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen, featured expert panelists as well as statewide resources for affected and concerned citizens. CPT12, along with our partners, reached thousands of Colorado families with our messaging, raising awareness of the state’s dropout crisis and driving people to take action. At least 75 families reached out for help directly through Colorado 2-1-1, and 675 people sought information online. Together we helped Coloradans understand the issues in a personal way. When we look back at the work and results we achieved in 2011, “American Graduate“ is a shining star for our reporting. We can now point to another significant, in-depth program that has led to quantifiable results in the community.


Special thanks to Colorado Youth for a Change, Urban Peak, United Way’s Colorado 2-1-1, The Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN), The Gay & Lesbian Center for Colorado’s Rainbow Alley and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) for their guidance, insights, expertise and friendship as we’ve begun to understand and tell this story. With new funding sources and partners, we hope to continue to build on this important work over time.

Ongoing Commitment: “American Graduate” is part of an intentional strategy to position Colorado Public Television as an essential community asset that is working to solve real problems. We have identified key areas of focus for our grant-funded work including education, the arts, public affairs/civic engagement and health care. The entire CPT12 staff and its board are very committed to engagement work. Next steps will revolve around funding and continued conversations with community partners who now know the value of having a broadcast partner in their own efforts.

Welcome Here.

“By partnering with Colorado Public Television for this special project, we were able to educate more Coloradans (including CYC’s donors) about the dropout crisis - especially as it pertains to LGBTQ youth. Additionally, we leveraged this partnership in a grant submitted to a local foundation to underscore our work with LGBTQ youth, and the result was $20,000 in seed money to jumpstart our outreach to these vulnerable youth.” ~ Steve Dobo CEO, Colorado Youth for a Change “We were very fortunate to be a part of the American Graduate project with CPT12. It created awareness of the work we are doing at Urban Peak for the homeless youth in our community, especially in the area of education, and to demonstrate resources available to this vulnerable population. CPT12 was (and continues to be) an amazing partner. Our staff, board and youth felt a sense of pride for being part of this important endeavor, and appreciated the PSAs and shows that were produced.” ~Robert Ham Media Director, Urban Peak

Revenues. Responsibility. Resourcefulness.

Resourceful Revenue Digital health tools… online auctions… receipt revenues… partnerships… resourcefulness… These were the new methods, means and models that helped CPT12 finish the year in solid financial shape.

12

Together with our partners Whole Foods, AnswersMedia, The Melting Pot and Buffalo Wild Wings, we realized new sources of income that augmented our traditional fundraising practices. They serve as benchmarks against which we will establish new receipt revenue partners. And the best part is these partners received significant visibility, building their businesses while giving back to CPT12 – all without interrupting our regular broadcast schedule. Our on-air auction kept pace but was expanded by our new “Bidding for Good” online auction capability. Now, the CPT12 auction – known for its quality products and great deals – is available more often and across the world, offering enhanced exposure for our partners’ goods and services. And three great acts graced the stage at Red Rocks during summer 2011; The Ultimate Thriller: The Michael Jackson Tribute; ABBA: Arrival from Sweden; and our annual Beatles concert, 1964: The Tribute. The sold-out crowds, perfect Colorado evenings and bouncing CPT12 beach balls made for terrific in-person reach and more than 24,000 tickets sold! Lowering costs and creating efficiencies – without cutting essential services or staff – were hallmarks of CPT12’s year. From digital downloads of content to reorganizing our teams for better internal collaboration, CPT12 is a lean, resourceful organization.
