Idaho Public Television

Idaho Public Television General Manager Peter Morrill and Marcia Franklin discuss recent actions in the Idaho Legislature regarding funding of IdahoPTV's conversion to digital technology. The Federal Communications Commission is requiring all television stations to change their broadcast facilities from analog to digital technology within the next three years. The total estimated cost to Idaho Public Television for the conversion of five transmitters statewide, as well as control room recording and editing facilities is about $12 million.
