The Interfaith Broadcasting
Commission is a cooperative venture of America's Abrahamic faith communities
a broad coalition of Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox Christians, Jewish and Muslim organizations in partnership with the
ABC, CBS and NBC television networks and their affiliated stations in every
part of the nation.
This partnership is rooted
in relationships as old as the broadcast industry itself, dating from an era
when the networks produced weekly public affairs programs in collaboration with
national Jewish and Christian communities. Today, the IBC faith groups originate
the programs, the networks distribute them, and the local affiliates offer them
to viewers across the country.
IBC's high quality programming,
offered four to six times a year on each network, brings to the broadcast industry
and the general public thoughtful, original content that heightens the awareness
of and appreciation for the many ways that religious faith plays a positive
role in American life.
The IBC television documentaries
and liturgical programs not only inspire individuals to explore ways in which
faith can enrich their lives, but also offer
a positive and unique contribution to the quality and values of the nation's
television programming. After more than 30 years of partnership, IBC
and the broadcast industry continue to enliven the discussion and expression
of religious faith for new generations of viewers.
