1967 was an important year in Prairie Public’s history. The KFME transmitter power increased to 265,000 watts, and we began broadcasting television programs in color—becoming one of a handful of educational stations to have color videotape facilities. That was also the year President Johnson created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and signed the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967—lauded by some as the most substantial piece of communication legislation of the 20th century. When signing the Act, President Johnson remarked that the legislation
President Lyndon B. Johnson signing the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 “announces to the world that our nation wants more than just material wealth; our nation wants more than a ‘chicken in every pot.’ We in America have an appetite for excellence, too. While we work every day to produce new goods and to create new wealth, we want most of all to enrich man’s spirit. That is the purpose of this act.” Stay tuned for more bits of history throughout this year as we celebrate 50 years of television that entertains, but also educates, informs, and inspires.
