by Allan BrownNoncommercial broadcasting is known as "public broadcasting" in North America and "public service broadcasting" (PSB) in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. In this special issue, the two terms are used interchangeably, although the European nomenclature has been adopted to standardize the titles of the articles. Devoted entirely to PSB, this issue seeks to redress the relative lack of attention that this topic has received by the journal to date.
The six articles examine the past, present, and future of PSB. The first article provides an analysis of PSB in terms of economic theory. The organization and operation of PSB in four English-speaking countries — United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and United States — are surveyed in separate studies by media academics from each country. The final article provides a brief summary and review of the main points raised in the country studies.
