As the organization grows, it will become more vital and effective in fulfilling its mission. Our initial membership was from broadcasters who were active in the business in the 1940's into the 1970's. We want those next generations of broadcasters to contribute their experiences in the industry. Those years have seen dramatic changes in both Radio and Television. It is part of Colorado's history that needs to be addressed in the BPC.
- Oral History and Artifacts
We are starting a visual and oral recording program of the Broadcast Professionals so the history of the early years in the industry is not lost. It will be an archive to show broadcast students, scholars and professionals of the significant contributions of our Broadcast Professionals. Artifacts will be collected for future reference to show the changes in technology and programming over the years.
A BPC Hall of Fame has been created to honor lifetime or special achievement of outstanding Colorado broadcasters.
Books, scripts, video and audio tapes and other materials of historic value to Colorado broadcasting are being collected and appropriate repositories are being identified.
- Fund Raising
If our organization is to accomplish our goals, there is a need to seek financial assistance for the projects beyond our basic membership. If you have a special interest in Broadcast history, your contribution will be welcomed.
