Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says those self-styled experts may have been right after all.
They were just a bit early when they predicted the end of public television.
But it's not that PBS and its stations are folding, he declares.. They are just feeling some contemporary heat from the current recession.
This, Sokolsky explains, may not have to signal the end of public TV. However, it has led to fewer donations, leading to lower budgets and fewer people to do the work
Among other things, that has caused KCET (Channel 28) in Los Angelis to place an indefinite hold on plans to do a set of specials in association with such other stations as KVCR (Channel 24) in the Inland Empire.
