Independence Public Media Foundation (IPMF) is a new private foundation, created when WYBE/ MIND TV, an alternative public TV station (Channel 35 in Philadelphia), relinquished its broadcast license and received a one-time payment of $131.5 million through the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Broadcast Incentive Auction in 2017. Since then, the foundation has undertaken a strategic planning process and hired its first president. We are now ready to hire our first Communications and Events Manager.
