Thank you so much for your support in 2018. It was a very trying year for Lakeshore PBS. We experienced a number of technical issues as a result of storm damage and vandalism. Our issues were further complicated by the national repack of television spectrum that made tower climbers virtually unavailable to us to perform repairs, and certain parts and testing equipment scarce. Through it, all our donors remained faithful and supportive.
As an alternative, community-licensed PBS station serving Chicagoland we are are not a huge operation. We don’t have all of the resources in the world, but we make up for it in our commitment to our fellow citizens. It is nothing short of an honor to serve you.
Moving forward we have a number of new projects and collaborations we are planning for 2019. Furthermore, we are exploring a number of options to improve our broadcast infrastructure in ways that will make our service more reliable and secure. 2019 will be a year you will definitely want to pay attention to.
Thank you for standing by our side!
