However, the coolest thing about this year’s Telly Awards is that PBS won 22 of them!

The winners of the 39th Annual Telly Awards were announced on May 22nd. Here’s a list of the PBS-related programs and media that were honored…

Take A Look! It’s In A Book!

If there’s a person who doesn’t like LeVar Burton, I sure don’t want to meet that guy.

To put it simply, LeVar is just awesome. Whether you know him from Roots, Star Trek: The Next Generation or from PBS’ own long-running children’s series Reading Rainbow, the beloved Mr. Burton is the apotheosis of cool. So it more than makes sense that the wonderful folks at PBS Digital would have commemorated the Reading Rainbow host with this neat little video. Enjoy!
