Now You're Talking with Marshall Ramsey


Now You're Talking w/ Marshall Ramsey | The Birth of MPB

In 1969, the Mississippi Legislature established the Mississippi Authority for Educational Television (MAET) with the mission of providing "educational and instructional professional growth and public service programs for the students and citizens of Mississippi." Since hitting the airwaves in 1970 as Mississippi Educational Television, Mississippi Public Broadcasting has been a transformative media outlet. Former legislators Walter Brown and Jim Robertson, Jr. join Marshall to talk us about their role in the birth of MPB and why carrying a legislative bill in your pocket is a great strategy to help it get passed. Also we hear from MPB’s Executive Director, Ronnie Agnew to add a present day perspective to the work of these great legislators.
