Inside FRONTLINE Reinventing Public Broadcasting
March 25, 2010
"...I am not alone in believing the idea and mission of public broadcasting must be reinvigorated around a mission for journalism. Radio has already shown the way; television now has to step up and do a lot more. Together they could become formidable."
Read, or view, this keynote address by David Fanning, executive producer of PBS's FRONTLINE since its debut in 1983.
The speech was given at the Goldsmith Awards ceremony this week, where Fanning was honored with the 2010 Goldsmith Career Award for Excellence in Journalism. FRONTLINE's investigative collaboration with ProPublica and The Times Picayune -- Law & Disorder --was also recognized as a finalist for the Goldsmith Investigative Reporting Prize.
