Tpt also developed a new three year strategic plan and recruited and hired three new executive positions to lead our organization transformation.
tpt was named by our employees as one of the top places to work in MN.
tpt intends to continue its investments in our core services and invest in new initiatives aligned with the strategic plan.
The core efforts include continued operation of our multi-channel broadcast service, leading thoughtful education and discourse around Minnesota's politics through Almanac, Almanac at the Capitol and live coverage of legislative sessions, continuing the work of our MN Collaborative team partnering with hundreds of non-profits to assist them in using the media to further their mission and purpose and continuing to document and celebrate arts and culture in Minnesota through the use of the Legacy funding.
Our new investments will include additional focus in serving children and their caregivers, deepening involvement with audiences age 50+ and creating opportunities to engage the Net Generation audience. We will also find ways to increase our operating revenue, deliver savings in operating expenses and expand and deepen critical external relationships.
