Public Service Broadcasting :  Unnecessary or More Important Than Ever?

Public Service Broadcasting : Unnecessary or More Important Than Ever?

The adjustment of licence fees will soon be renegotiated. Reasons enough that there is currently a lively debate on the funding and the contents of public service broadcasting at the Federal State level. Why is public service broadcasting covered by licence fees and organised federally? Why do we still need public service broadcasting given that there are many private broadcasters? What are the pros and cons of this model? And how can a modern model of public service broadcasting look like? What should public service broadcasting achieve? Is the model outdated or is the public service remit behind it more important than ever? In BredowCast #31, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz speaks about important functions of public service broadcasting and the relationships with private providers. He makes suggestions on how communication in society and “structural diversification” can be guaranteed in the future as well.
