In mid-May, PBS held their Annual Meeting at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. Bringing together employees and local PBS stations from around the country, producers and others to talk about upcoming PBS and PBS KIDS programming of all types. From breakfasts hosted by Sesame Street, inspirational keynotes and general sessions with PBS management and leadership, and programming previews to special appearances by celebrities such as Meg Ryan, Olivia Wilde, Fred Willard (PS check out his new show, Market Warriors, which premieres July 16!) and many others, the hotel was buzzing with high-caliber entertainment and informative sessions. We also love that they invited bloggers to attend the conference to learn more about the company/s upcoming broadcast and online programming, and that a heavy emphasis was placed on social media and its importance to PBS and local affiliates. Way to go PBS, keep up the great work!
