About MPT
Maryland Public Television: MPT

Maryland Public Television, which is commonly known by its familiar name "MPT", is a public television network that comprises six television stations that broadcast throughout the entire state of Maryland as well as into the District of Columbia and parts of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. MPT is the only state-wide broadcaster in Maryland. MPT is a member of the Public Broadcasting Service.

Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission

The Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission is an agency of the state of Maryland that holds MPT's broadcast licenses issued by the Federal Communications Commission. Established in 1966, the Commission is an 11-member body appointed by the governor and oversees the operations of MPT.

MPT Foundation

The MPT Foundation, Inc. is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1981 to encourage increased funding for MPT and to receive donations and grants on MPT's behalf. The Foundation also safeguards MPT's endowment funds in an effort to insulate MPT from economic hard times.

The MPT Foundation is governed by an independent board of directors composed of community leaders who are elected to staggered three-year terms. Directors serve strictly on a voluntary basis.

Funds housed at the MPT Foundation enable MPT to respond to program opportunities that sometimes present themselves off the rhythm of state and federal budget planning cycles. With the support of corporations, foundations, and, above all, individuals, we are truly public broadcasting.
