Congressman Gonzalez on future of Public Radio and TV in South Texas

Local News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Congressman Vicente Gonzalez sent a letter to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley President, Guy Bailey, requesting a meeting to discuss the future of public radio and TV stations in the Rio Grande Valley. Given the recent shuttering of local NPR and PBS radio and TV stations, Congressman Gonzalez is engaging stakeholders to explore the possibility of housing them at the university.

“Despite being home to close to 1.5 million people, the Rio Grande Valley now has limited access to public radio and TV broadcasts,” Congressman Gonzalez said. “This cannot be possible – not in one of the fastest growing regions of the country.”
