As the nation’s leading public media advisors, we work alongside you to secure the right opportunity for your organization and community – everything from analyzing strategic options and negotiating operating agreements, to executing station transactions and coordinating collaborations.

PMC works with clients to assess risk, evaluate impact and to design effective solutions that increase public media service. It is intentional work that is in our mission-driven DNA. Given that shifts in technology and media distribution, communications infrastructure, data management, and station and community relations are ever-changing, PMC provides discrete services to inform decision-making and operations across public media.

PMC identifies and analyzes an organization’s strategic options through operational assessments, valuations, in-depth market studies and financial analyses. From there, we evaluate the viability of potential business opportunities with financial forecasts and comprehensive business modeling.

Our consulting services are tailored for the specific needs of your organization – we offer everything from strategic planning with your Board, practical guidance on expanding public media services with new formats and channels, business acquisitions, collaborations, and new media service design and development.

TransactionsSummaryPublic Media Company has represented clients in $320 million of acquisition and financing transactions. When an educational institution decides to sell their station, we assist them in finding a nonprofit buyer that will continue to serve the community. We coordinate and facilitate a wide range of business solutions for our clients, including mergers, partnerships as well as innovative operational and format changes.

“Public Media Company’s expertise was well-rounded and impressive. PMC understands the value of a license, how to operate a station and they also know the players in the field. It is remarkable what we were able to accomplish in only six months. Without PMC, this process would have been extremely difficult.”
