PBS39's fiscal year begins on July 1 and continues through June 30 of the following year.

A Message from Our CEO About This Report...

Change and growth have been the absolute bywords that exemplify fiscal year 2018 at PBS39.

As you enjoy your trolley ride through our annual report, you will see we have been very busy creating a community that is inspired, engaged and vibrant.

We have expanded the focus of our efforts to include a journalism initiative which includes our PBS39 Reporter Corps TM , the staff that delivers the PBS39 News Tonight every weeknight at 6:30 and 11.

Meanwhile, we continue to honor our core mission as we expand our educational programs to include even more impact and value for the Greater Lehigh Valley’s students and teachers. We are working with the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley on the expansion of Lehigh Valley Reads, a collective impact initiative whose goal is to break the cycle of poverty by ensuring that our children are reading at grade level before they enter Grade 4.

So enjoy the report! Its theme is an homage to the beloved Fred Rogers and the 50th anniversary of his show’s debut in 1968.

It truly is a beautiful day in PBS39’s neighborhood!

Warm regards,
Timothy S. Fallon
