The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (“CPB”) seeks the services of a consultant(s) to identify successful, replicable business operating models from within the public broadcasting system, including those that have integrated digital strategies. The consultant will use this research to develop blueprints and benchmarks to assist stations in understanding and implementing new, innovative or more integrative strategies that best serve public media operations now and into the future, and assist CPB in developing initiatives to support such efforts. The consultant will be expected to identify public broadcasting TV stations that employ successful business strategies that tie revenue generation and sustainability to mission-centered activities and content offerings. Strategies that include collaborative elements or partnerships, especially those that lower costs and/or reduce costly infrastructure, are of particular interest. It is anticipated that multiple models will be identified. Some may be defined as overall operational approaches, while other may be unique strategies or business areas that could be integrated into an established public media service.
