CET Connect Site Expanding

Audio podcasts, personalized options and more video will be added to , the Cincinnati public TV station’s Internet site, with a $200,000 grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasts.

Launched two years ago, the website offers more than 1,000 arts, educational, history, family and public affairs videos on demand. The federal funding will allow CET to redesign the website, offer podcasts and let users customize their areas of interests, says Susan Howarth CET president and CEO.

The grant was announced during a station reception Monday evening with PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger, who cited CETconnect as a model for other PBS stations.

"This is one of a handful of the best examples of local (PBS) stations using video. As I travel around the country, I send a lot of people to the CET site to see what they're doing," Kerger says.

"They are doing some really interesting experiments. This is a space we need to be in. I've been really impressed. They're doing it extraordinarily well."

During the event, CET board member Marty Humes of Wyoming was presented the Charles W. Vaughan Award for organizing last year’s "Live on CET!" fund-raiser.
