TAB begins 2012 Public Service Research Project

“So, what have you done for me lately?”

That’s the question TAB strives to answer for state and federal policymakers with the annual Public Service Research Project.

Despite having documented more than $4.3 billion in contributions to local communities over the past 14 years, Texas broadcasters must continually remind lawmakers of their unwavering leadership in service to local viewers and listeners.

The TAB Public Service Project collects data from Texas’ 1,300+ radio and television stations on their total amount of public service airtime donated, station contributions to charities, public service staff salaries and more.

This year, the report also is asking for information on stations’ wildfire relief efforts.

“The devastating fires of 2011 are still fresh in the collective memory, and after doing so much to warn the public of the danger, provide life-saving information and helm relief efforts, it is imperative to underscore stations’ leadership on this front,” Rodriguez said.

Each station’s information will be kept confidential.

Only aggregate figures for Texas will be released.

As in past years, Dr. Augie Grant will be supervising the project to ensure accuracy.

TAB mailed questionnaires to all Texas stations on January 27.

Contact TAB’s Teresa McAnally or call (512) 322-9944 with questions or if you need additional copies of the questionnaire.
