Hundreds of public television stations across the nation are anticipated to air the six-minute interstitial segment at various times over the next seven months.
Shorter commercials, including 15-second and 30-second spots, were created and are airing in May on regional news shows and CBS Sunday Morning in the New York area with the assistance of WCBS. The entire Glenholme community is pleased with the effort and appreciative of the diligence and enthusiasm of the “VOICES IN AMERICA” team and the creative crew at WCBS in New York.
