I talk often about the work PBS does for kids, but you may not know about the innovative work of the public television website NextAvenue.org. Next Avenue’s tagline describes it perfectly – “Where Grown-Ups Keep Growing”. The site is geared toward adults aged 50+ and designed to address the issues that arise during “middle adulthood”. From health and wellness to financial planning to caring for aging parents – the site is a wealth of information, written by and for baby boomers.
The idea for the site came out of the need for reliable information through key events in life. In true public television fashion, Next Avenue has partnered with governmental agencies, non-profit organizations and a few media outlets to create a clearinghouse of trustworthy information from credible sources. And with well-written articles and editorials on hundreds of topics, the website is as engaging as it is reliable. If you haven’t already visited NextAvenue.org, I encourage you to take a look. I think you’ll like what you see.
As our June pledge drive begins, I invite you to tune in and take part. Pledge drives are such an important source of revenue for the station and help fund the programs we all enjoy year round. You’ll find details on the June pledge schedule throughout your program guide. We sincerely appreciate your continued support of public television in the Ozarks. Thank you for your generosity.
