Public Service Questionnaire

Each year, TAB documents the value of our broadcasters’ public service to local communities in our advocacy before policymakers in Austin and Washington, DC.

We appreciate your time spent completing the questionnaire and want to help facilitate the process by providing a quick step-by-step of the information you will need in order to do so. With this information, the form should take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Your responses should include information for ALL of your local community service projects, not just your support for TAB’s NCSA/PEP campaigns.

Before you begin, note that a separate form must be filled out for each station and the deadline for completing the survey is Wed., Jan. 3.

Questions? Contact TAB's or call (512) 322-9944.
