Budget Cuts At KET

Public TV viewers in Northern Kentucky – and throughout the state – could see some changes on Channel 54 and the rest of the KET network due to state budget cuts.

This statement was issued this afternoon by KET:

"The recently enacted Fiscal Year 2009-10 Kentucky state budget eliminates $1.8 million in general funds for KET, representing a 12% cut from KET's original FY 2008 state funding. Additionally, the loss of funds associated with retirements could potentially result in more budget reductions.

At the Friday, April 25, meeting of the Kentucky Authority for Educational Television, KET's governing board, action was taken to authorize planning for the implementation of budget and personnel reductions that will impact KET's educational programs and services. Specific reductions have not yet been identified.

"The severity of these budget cuts will significantly impact KET's ability to produce and deliver vital educational programs and services to the citizens of the Commonwealth," said Malcolm Wall, KET executive director. "We know that we are not alone, as many agencies are facing similar budget cuts. While we are disappointed by the state budget and personnel reductions, we are focused on planning and managing KET's resources through this challenging time. Our priority is to serve the viewers, teachers and students who tell us every day that KET's educational programs are more essential now than ever before."
