Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

In June 2015, OPB’s Steve Bass joined a delegation in Kiev sponsored by the U.S. Department of State to assist the Ukraine government in setting up an independent public media organization.  He met with senior top management of National Television of Ukraine (NTU), media entrepreneurs, journalists and government officials (both U.S. And Ukrainian), and provided advice on issues such as editorial policies, revenue models, and structure for a wholly-new type of organization designed to inform Ukraine citizens living within a blizzard of propaganda and the "weaponization of information." He’ll offer some observations about Ukraine and the challenges it faces.
