Background[edit]
Local community leader Ardath Y. Burkhart formed a small grassroots campaign to launch an noncommercial educational television station to serve Indianapolis. Burkhart (whose group became known as “Ardath’s Army”) quickly gained support in the community by stating his case to residents in Indianapolis and surrounding counties. The volunteers raised enough funds over the course of a few weeks to cover a year’s worth of operating expenses.
