Exhibit Special Features
Over the past 50 years, Maryland Public Television has earned hundreds of local, regional, and national awards for its outstanding productions, outreach programs, and fundraising efforts – including four national Emmy® awards, 164 regional Emmy® awards, several James Beard Foundation awards for cooking productions, a Peabody Award earned by ITV, the Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award for journalism, and CINE Golden Eagle awards, among many others.
When public television stations appeal to their viewers for support, they usually offer a small token of thanks for making a donation. Whether a yo-yo, stress ball, or chocolate logo, MPT’s promotional giveaways have often been whimsical. But serious premium items – DVDs of favorite viewer programs, instructional books, and apparel – have often been chosen by fans as ongoing remembrances of their time well spent with Maryland Public Television.
