KERA is a media enterprise â an educational, cultural and civic institution whose mission is to use the power of television, radio and emerging technologies to enrich the lives of individuals and improve the communities we serve.
KERA was founded by local leaders in 1957 based on core public service and education principles much like those subsequently reflected in the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 that founded a national public broadcasting service:
- Public broadcasting is fundamentally a local institution, rooted in the social, educational and cultural fabric of hundreds of communities across the country.
- The programs and services of public broadcasting must be available to all Americans, regardless of their location or ability to pay.
- Lifelong education is the founding goal of public broadcasting and must be preserved.
- The noncommercial character of public broadcasting, as well as its editorial integrity and independence, are critical to its public service mission
