Dear Broadcast Partners,
We at “White House Chronicle” hope that you are enjoying a golden summer like the one depicted in this painting by Arthur Streeton minus the sheep.
This summer we're continuing to add PBS and public, educational and government (PEG) access TV stations to our fine list of Broadcast Partners. We're pleased that this week, the Public Media Network of Kalamazoo, Mich., will begin carrying “White House Chronicle.” And in October, WSBE-TV, Rhode Island PBS, will be carrying the program.
We really encourage PBS and PEG stations to tell other stations about “White House Chronicle” through their professional associations and social media networks.
In August, we'll take our usual taping break and will repeat some of this year's timeless episodes. I'd like to highlight some of these:
– A series taped at this year's Edison Electric Institute annual convention in San Francisco, with news-making discussions on the social impact of distributed generation (solar panels on homes, etc.) and utilities' ability to respond to severe weather events.
– An episode on President Obama's Africa electrification initiative with panelists Barry Worthington of the U.S. Energy Association, an arm of the World Energy Council, Brian Keane of SmartPower, and Adam Clayton Powell III of the University of Southern California
– Host Llewellyn King talking one-on-one with SiriusXM's Joe “The Black Eagle” Madison about the radio host's longtime work as an activist in war zones
– Journalist Claude Salhani's frank remarks in an episode on the use of drones in the Middle East
– An episode on American foreign policy with Vali Nasr of the John's Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Amitai Etzioni of The George Washington University
– Mr. King's discussion of new technology, productivity and competitiveness with Robert Atkinson of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation
Of course, we're proud of the number ofjournalists – print and radio — we've brought to TV this year in our weekly, on-the-news panel discussion, including: Pamela Kirkland of The Washington Post, Olivier Knox of Yahoo! News, Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post, Frances Sellers of The Washington Post and Donovan Slack of Politico.
Mr. King is interested in writing a column on PEG stations for the Hearst-New York Times Syndicate. If you'd like to weigh in, please call him at (202) 662-9731.
Please call or e-mail us at any time about anything.
We're looking forward to a golden fall.
Our best to you,
Co-host and General Manager
