PBS is the home for everything from the Cookie Monster to Ken Burns’ acclaimed documentaries.
But PBS President Paula Kerger tells WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter the public broadcasting service does much more than just inform and entertain.
“We’ve also been focused on bringing stories forward that hopefully will remind us of that time when we all pulled together around a sense of common purpose.” — Paula Kerger, PBS
“We’ve been criticized for not being as exciting as other news organizations. I think that’s a good thing,” Kerger says. “We just want to make sure you have information you can trust. And from that you can build your own opinion.”
Kerger says PBS is a half-century-old brand that provides information people trust because it is always based on facts.
