"Public broadcasters like Knowledge are more willing to take on a broad matter of content, so we’re not just being streamed one type of information with one political or cultural slant."

A Trusted Source of Knowledge

An inquisitive mind is a must when your work depends on the constant acquisition of knowledge. As a former journalist who now uses his skills as a communications consultant, Stephen Forgacs has always believed that he can do his job better and feel more enriched if he is always learning. One of the sources he relies on is Knowledge Network. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there, and it’s sometimes hard to discern what is a reliable source. But there are certain places we can turn to where we trust the content and we trust the people delivering the content,” says Stephen. “Knowledge is one of those places. We can trust that they’re providing us with entertaining information and educational content that has, in a sense, been screened and doesn’t conflict with our values.”

Stephen believes that public broadcasting plays an important role in a crowded media landscape that’s dominated by commercial interests and agendas. “Public broadcasters like Knowledge are more willing to take on a broad matter of content, so we’re not just being streamed one type of information with one political or cultural slant. It tends to be more diverse and probably better reflects the diverse community we have in Canada.”

Having dropped cable TV long ago, Stephen says once he discovered he could watch Knowledge online, it was a no-brainer to throw his support behind it and become a Knowledge Partner. “It’s really essential that we all do what we can to ensure that we have this kind of content into the future. Without support from the viewers, we risk losing a valuable asset.”
