Detroit Public Television is top nonprof in city, business paper says
Detroit Public Television is the Best-Managed Nonprofit in that city, as chosen by Crain's Detroit Business. The publication cites DPT's programming shift to five areas "critical to the region," children/education, arts/culture, energy/environment, health/safety and jobs/leadership -- while reducing its operational costs by $2.4 million. “With the way the media landscape has changed over the last few years, there's more and more of a need for a station committed to public engagement and (local) public information,” Rich Homberg, president and general manager, told the paper. The station also closed out a $22 million capital campaign and brought in more than $1 million in new funding.
