At Public Media Company, our mission is to foster sustainable and innovative public media to amplify local voices and culture.

Founded in 2001 by Station Resource Group, Public Media Company is a national nonprofit strategic consulting company that fosters public media growth. Public Media Company was founded in 2001 as a 501(c)3 for the purpose of strengthening and expanding public broadcasting services in communities nationwide so that people have greater program choices for in-depth information; national, regional and local news; diverse music and cultural programming. Since then, Public Media Company has advised more than 300 public television and radio stations and independent media organizations on a variety of strategic initiatives that drive innovative, sustainable public media growth.

In addition to our work with individual organizations to enhance scale, sustainability and local service, PMC also manages a number of regional and national projects and strategic initiatives to advance public media’s reach. Our work with clients, philanthropists, and foundations to lead innovation and to engage new and younger audiences inspired us to develop Channel X, VuHaus and the Public Media Venture Group.

We are grateful to our many funding partners through the years, some of whom are listed below, for their generous support of our mission to foster innovative and sustainable public media growth.
