STATEMENT OF PBS PRESIDENT AND CEO PAULA KERGER REGARDING WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY JR.

“William F. Buckley Jr. will be remembered for setting the standard for intelligent discourse in broadcasting through his work on ‘Firing Line.’ Mr. Buckley’s eloquence, wit and wisdom made ‘Firing Line’ required viewing, no matter your point of view. The program’s ability to attract loyal viewers from every political persuasion is a tribute to Mr. Buckley’s commitment to open and honest debating. Public television is deeply honored to have been Mr. Buckley’s home for almost 30 years. We will miss him greatly.”
