KPBS receives gift from apartment developer

KPBS-TV and KPBS Radio 89.5-FM has announced it has received another $500,000 from San Diego apartment developer and philanthropist Conrad Prebys.

Half of the half-million dollars will go to the Masterpiece Trust, a trust account that funds production of PBS's Masterpiece primetime drama series, and the other half will support local programming on KPBS, said KPBS general manager Tom Karlo.

This latest donation brings Prebys' contributions to $1.5 million since 2012 for both the trust account and KPBS, San Diego’s affiliate for PBS and NPR.
