The Museum of Television and Radio is airing a name change - it's the institution which used to be called the Museum of Broadcasting. The museum's trustees say they believe "the new name more accurately describes the museum's collection, which now includes not only programs that have been broadcast, but also material created for transmission by other methods, such as cable and satellite."
A Sept. 12 opening is still planned for the museum's new building, which is to be officially named The William S. Paley Building, in honor of the museum's founder."This new structure and its state-of-the-art technology will greatly facilitate the public's access to the programs in the museum's extensive radio and television collection," says the museum.
It also announced recently that the Coca-Cola Co. has made a $250,000 pledge to "The Fund for the Future," its new-building capital campaign.
