HISS BACK AT THE CPB FOR SHAMEFUL PERFORMANCE
CPB Helps Stations Convert to HD Radio Philadelphia - Sep 26, 2005 - The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) will purchase a group license that will allow more than 400 CPB-funded public radio stations to acquire Ibiquity's digital HD Radio technology. This group license will also cover costs associated with the technology's advanced services such as multicasting and datacasting. Previously, CPB provided funding to about 400 local public radio stations for their digital conversions.
CPB, a private, nonprofit corporation created by Congress in 1967, is the steward of the federal government's investment in public broadcasting. It helps support the operations of more than 1,000 locally owned and operated public TV and radio stations nationwide, and is the largest single source of funding for research, technology and program development for public radio, TV and related online services.
