The Public Media Venture Group (PMVG) was founded in 2017 by Public Media Company, a national nonprofit strategic consulting company that fosters public media growth – and an initial group of 27 public media licensees.
These founding organizations identified the need for public media stations to collectively develop, test, and launch services and revenue streams that leverage new technologies to further the mission of public media.
Now an independent nonprofit business development corporation, PMVG consists of 33 licensees. PMVG stations are led by some of public media's most dynamic leaders, operating 130 television stations that serve over 240 million people.
PMVG is a founding member of Signal Infrastructure Group (SIG), formerly Public Media Group, a public benefit corporation focused on partnering with all broadcasters to expand access to content and information through technology infrastructure.
