WCTE-TV President and CEO Becky Magura
WCTE Board of Trustees
and
WCTE Staff


For the Extraordinary Service
They Provide to the People of
Upper Cumberland Tennessee
and for Hosting a Visit from the CPB Board.


CPB is grateful for the gracious hospitality that the WCTE Board of Trustees, staff and their local and state partners afforded to the CPB Board of Directors during our June 2016 visit.
Visiting WCTE-TV was a special opportunity to see first-hand the value that a public media station brings to its community. WCTE-TV has built important partnerships with leaders in local education, business, agriculture, economic development, public safety, music, art, theatre, athletics, and tourism to provide vital programs, services, and resources to the residents of Cookeville, Tennessee, and across the Upper Cumberland.


CPB appreciates the leadership of WCTE-TV President and CEO Becky Magura and the vital role of the WCTE’s Board of Trustees and hard-working personnel in ensuring remote areas of the Upper Cumberland are served, the educational needs of the community’s at-risk youth are addressed, and the region’s artistic and cultural life is enriched.


CPB looks forward to a continuing collaboration to ensure WCTE-TV’s vibrant future of service the people of middle Tennessee.
