WGBH Educational Foundation is the single largest producer of television and web content for the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). Since 1983, WGBH Educational Foundation has produced and presented FRONTLINE, a weekly documentary journalism program that provides extensive, in-depth examinations of complex stories not typically found elsewhere on U.S. television. In addition to producing and broadcasting an average of 20 episodes during its regular season, FRONTLINE produces content year-round, on a daily basis, including shorter-form newsmagazine episodes distributed on its website, via podcast, social media, and YouTube. General operating support from the MacArthur Foundation allows FRONTLINE to make critical investments in a digital producing infrastructure that enhances its ability to report across a range of media, while also providing it with flexibility to respond quickly to opportunities and to investigate important issues as they arise.
