Shout Out to Leg Live Funders!

March 10 2012 by Peter Morrill

As the legislative session heads into its finally few weeks, I want to take this opportunity to formally thank the funders of our Legislature Live service both on-air and on-line.


Major operational support for Legislature Live has been provided by the Idaho State Broadcasters Association. Additional support is provided by Union Pacific, Idaho Association of Counties, Association of Idaho Cities, the Idaho Cable Telecommunications Association and your contributions to the Idaho Public Television Endowment.


It goes without saying that these group have made all the financial difference in the world in our ability to provide this very important service.


On March 9, Idaho Reports produced a fun segment that profiled the Legislature Live service. It begins 12:12 into the program can be viewed at:


(Please note that at 15:10, our major funder was incorrectly identified. It is the Idaho State Broadcasters Association, not the Idaho School Board Association. We thank the Idaho State Broadcasters Association, and all of our ILL funders, for their contributions to make this service possible!)

Support IdahoPTV During FESTIVAL 2012

March 03 2012 by Peter Morrill

By Megan Griffin, Director of Development

Idaho Public Television’s FESTIVAL is a rite of spring across the Gem State. The success of Festival, our largest single fund raising event, helps to ensure IdahoPTV’s ability to buy and produce the programming and services we in turn provide to you throughout the year.


On March 3, we’ll kick off the prime-time fun with a brand new special BIG BAND VOCALISTS and Celtic Thunder’s new program VOYAGE. Throughout these sixteen days, you can explore Idaho Geology in a brand new OUTDOOR IDAHO (Thursday, March 8), hear new concerts by up and coming artists as well as old favorites, and be treated to the world premiere of the all new NATURE River of No Return (Wednesday, March 7) filmed in the Frank Church Wilderness right here in Idaho.


This on-air fundraising campaign is the time of year when we ask our loyal viewers around the state to show their support for the incredible programs and community events Idaho Public Television offers throughout the year. It is your member contributions and corporate sponsorships that fund our programming costs. 


Other specials during FESTIVAL include ticket opportunities to see the Broadway sensation War Horse, guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel, Yanni, and the timeless classic Les Misérables all live here in Idaho.


Our goal is to provide the best shows available on television that will educate, inform and inspire viewers of all ages. With your support, we can achieve that goal. Tune-in, pledge your support, and join the FESTIVAL!
