West Virginia Public Broadcasting Special Projects
West Virginia Public Broadcasting is committed to telling the story of our state and its people, and helping to educate our citizens. And WVPB has a long history of working with its own employees as well as independent producers on award-winning projects.
When selecting which projects to undertake, WVPB will maintain the highest level of editorial integrity and independence. We will follow the guidelines set out by both NPR and PBS, which say that “content evaluation is an art, not a science, requiring professional judgments about the value of content in relation to a broad range of informational, aesthetic, technical and other considerations….” [For more, please see: http://www.pbs.org/aboutpbs/aboutpbs_standards.html.]
WVPB is interested in receiving applications for new and innovative projects which serve our mission. Projects may include (but are not limited to) video and audio documentaries; ongoing series; user-generated content; podcasts; video specials; live performances; interactive educational games; etc.
All proposals for major projects, from our producers or those from outside the organization, must be approved by the Special Projects committee of WVPB. It shall be appointed by the Executive Director, and consist of the ED and one or more representatives from each of the following departments: news, video production, TV programming, radio programming, and digital. The ED may also appoint other members to the group, including representatives from the EBA, Friends and/or Foundation, at his discretion.
