DETAILS ON THE PBS SOCAL BROADCAST OF BIG VOICE
The ratings exceeded PBS SoCal’s daypart average by 40%, and the website (BIG VOICE) landing page was in the top 11 most visited on the PBS SoCal website March 1 to May 3, beating out national programs such as Antiques Roadshow, Independent Lens, and Masterpiece. And, even though the film was focused on a hyper-local Santa Monica group, the film’s story clearly had universal appeal, receiving very broad carriage on PBS stations across the United States. In the first month after being released nationally, the program has already been scheduled over 1,100 times on 203 channels in 114 markets and reaching 80% of the top 25 markets across the country, and in 39 US states – covering 70% of the United States. ~ PBS SoCal
