The Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 | Austin City Limits Hall of Fame 2017

This year commemorates the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Public Broadcasting Act. The law created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and later led to the creation of both PBS and NPR. Austin City Limits honors the milestone signing in the non-performer category this year. The landmark act was signed into law in November 1967 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, who remarked at the time, “We want most of all to enrich man’s spirit. That is the purpose of this act.” The Act stipulates that “it is in the public interest to encourage the development of programming that involves creative risks and that addresses the needs of unserved and underserved audiences, particularly children and minorities.”

About SXSW:
Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.
